A Taste of Dance, Online, Saturday, 03. October 2020

4 choreographers will showcase their dance pieces while audiences sip 4 tastings of perfectly selected wine to pair with each dance.

About this Event

This event has moved to an online version in October.  Audience members will pick up their 4 bottles of wine during the last week in September, and each video will be released on Fridays through October. Audiences then can open their paired wine with each week's dance video and enjoy the wine with the performance!

NOTE: By purchasing tickets with wine, you agree that you are over 21 years old. You will be asked for ID when picking up your wine.

Our choreographers:

October 2: TriptheDark Dance Company will showcase three pieces. Two of them were performed in a production earlier this year focused on deadly sins; one is a protest piece and is particularly timely for the environment we are currently in,  and the other is a commentary on the contradictions within every human. The third piece is brand new and will tie together the other two pieces.

October 9: Jana Zahler and Patsy Morris will perform a Modern dance work called "Be" that explores three defined characters seen as a lady bug, a bumble bee, and a flower. This is a seedling of a larger full-length production inspired by the climate crisis that we are currently facing in a light-hearted, accessible way. Conceptually, they journey through the cycle of connectedness, imbalance, disconnection, and then reconnection. This work is geared for young folks and ***** audiences alike.

October 16: Sitara Lones a semi-classical fusion of Kathak and Persian style dance. The piece will be a natural fusion of 2 styles of dance that share deep historical, cultural, and artistic roots.

October 23: Angela Mazziotta is truly diving into the theme of this performance series and developing a contemporary piece in collaboration with the notes and impressions of the chosen wine pairing. This piece will focus on inspiration from the Black Lives Matter movement and the ways complicity in systemic racism and white supremacy are baked into every industry.
