Unstoppable: A Queer Dancical @ Broadway Performance Hall (Seattle – Capitol Hill)
Mar 1 @ 7:30 pm

Inspired by real life events, Unstoppable is an ode to the power and resilience of the queer community. It follows two friends who move from their small town to the city as they navigate relationships, community, and political drama against the backdrop of an election season.

Unstoppable is a full-on original play filled with queer stories, pop hits, and powerful dance scenes. The “dancical” format builds on choreographed dancing instead of live singing. No more hiding behind singers as the unfortunately named “backup dancers” — Unstoppable shines a spotlight on the diverse and talented dancer-actors in our community. And also … drag queens!

Developed through a collaboration between Dare to Dance Seattle, a nonprofit providing professional-quality opportunities for dance enthusiasts of all ages to create and perform, and Green Carpet Studio, an independent production company. Creatively, the show is a natural extension of the 12 full-length dance shows previous curated by Dare to Dance Seattle, which always had a focus on collaboration and storytelling.

Residency Entry Point: Drama Tops @ Base (Seattle – Georgetown)
Mar 3 @ 4:00 pm

Drama Tops is excited to use this Base Residency as a production residency for their new work, “Dads,” which explores Shane and Elby’s relationships to their fathers, their complex thoughts on becoming dads, and their queer, male thoughts of “getting a Daddy” and “turning into a daddy”.

As part of their research in fatherhood and leadership Drama Tops will be working on a new mentorship program called “Off the Lead” which invites their peers into space to have their own rehearsals during the residency. Drama Tops will be immersed in conversations with their peers about each other’s work as a way to share opportunities and be “arts daddies” for each other. This program aims to give queer people space to make and talk about their work while encouraging artists to “unleash” their artistic ideas and question hierarchical structures of mentorship. These works-in-process will be shown in the final “Off the Lead” showing and conversation as a part of Base’s Residency Program.

Location: Base, inside Equinox Studios (6520 5th Ave S)

The Seattle Project (founded by PNB soloist Amanda Morgan) and Velocity Dance Center present here because, a multidisciplinary, full-length, performance work that will showcase a union of dancers who oftentimes aren’t able to collaborate and bring together communities who oftentimes don’t intersect. We are here because of the many individuals that created the framework for the Seattle dance community to become what it is today. We are here because of the local communities that want and need art. We are here because of where we want creation and performance to go. This piece will serve as a reminder of how previous generations have influenced the way things are now. And in turn, how the current generation is influencing the way things will be moving forward. This piece is about community. This piece is for Seattle.

Slowdanger: Supercell @ Velocity Dance Center (Seattle – Capitol Hill)
Mar 21 @ 7:30 pm

Supercell is an evening-length multidisciplinary quintet performance responding to climate consciousness, media sensationalism, desensitization, & environmental collapse. The title refers to supercells, large storms of deep, persistent updrafts often resulting in many tornadoes. While supercells are terrifying, ominous, and harbingers of great damage, they are simultaneously breathtaking environmental events when witnessed from afar. The effect is similar to sensationalist media, instantly amplifying catastrophic events for an insatiable public consumption. The work asks the question, how do we cultivate hope during continually uncertain times?

Fusing corporeal mime techniques, contemporary and improvisational dance frameworks, live vocalization/spoken text, electronic/sample based music and interactive technology/set design, Supercell builds a potent and tangible world on stage. Performers’ interactions have corresponding effects within their performance environment as they navigate a world in the midst of fallout from environmental collapse and toxic sensationalization. The amplified breaths and vocalizations of the dancers as a chorus function as a motif articulating the toxic environment’s effects on their bodies.

Location: 12th Avenue Arts (1620 12th Ave.)

Lavinia Vago: FKK @ Velocity Dance Center / location TBA (Seattle)
May 3 @ 7:30 pm

FKK is a long and intentional multilayered journey of research rooted in dance. From underground raves, queer clubs, durational performance spaces, punk mosh pits, noise pressure, cathartic dancefloors, rituals of release, and empathetic relationships rooted in love, a performance is birthed. A portal for kinesthetic empathy, where time dilates and each moment extends to eternity in a collective journey of healing.

Dance is the place where we can encounter our demons and chase them, confront them, and ground with them. Make them our bitch, so we can dominate them; we find our freedom there. Music is the gateway to reconnect with joy, unconditional love, to each other, and the rhythm of the universe sitting inside us.

Using the solo form as a multitude of experiences on top of each other we ask : how much can one body do alone? How far can it be pushed? What else can you discover there? What is the tender space between pain and pleasure? The choreographic codes attack the vulnerability of the flesh using technologies of the body memory. FKK is a place to celebrate the resilience of the body, the boundlessness of the soul, and to honor the immense power of dance.

Location: to be announced

Residency Entry Point: Ankita Sharma @ Base (Seattle – Georgetown)
May 11 @ 2:30 pm

dhoka/Betrayal/ entangles Hindu goddess Kali’s ultimate power and destructive nature with present-day authoritarianism and religious violence, using myth to unpack how Hinduism has been shaped into propaganda for Indian ethno-nationalism by Western influence. Tracing Kali’s deification, dhoka accompanies her transformation into a colonized, fetishized, destructive image that upholds violence with her bloodied tongue. The work lives at the fringes of reality and genre, letting the epic and human dance together: a physical exploration of how worship distorts what something stands for.

Location: Base, inside Equinox Studios (6520 5th Ave S)
