New works with a unique range of dancers and musicians who are experimenting with new ideas and forms of technology to inspire innovative work.  This unique group of artists will electrify audiences beyond the constraints of the physical venue.

Small Stage has a new project, incubator project. 

This week our unique range of dancers and musicians are experimenting with new ideas. 

The incubator project is about building space for risk, while focusing on shared learning experiences.  It builds on unique opportunities and challenges diverse dance artists who are interested in growing their work in new and exciting ways.

We need your help!

We want your opinion on particular elements of this performance: movement quality, costuming, integration of lighting and sound, theme, length – among many other elements that will contribute to our success.

Ask questions! Make suggestions!  We want to hear what you think!  With your valuable response, we will further enhance and strengthen these creations.

NEXT WEEK:   volume 5   1-December, 2016
We are going to build on your feedback, and take each work in different directions.
