An examination of the shared elements of human nature.

As part of The Movement Series, tbd. dance collective presents mode of being, an evening length production examining the shared elements of human nature.  Through movement, dancers will explore the external behaviors, rituals, and patterns we engage in on a daily basis, as well as the internal ability we have to experience life through a range of emotions.  These shared acts of humanity are widely varied, but can overlap and intersect – connecting us in ways that can be easily seen, and other times only felt. Mode of being will feature a live, original score, created in direct conversation with the choreography and exhibition.

The performance will take place in galleries on both the second and main floors.  The first half of the performance will be upstairs, with standing room only. Audience members will then be asked to move from the second floor, to the main floor.  If special assistance, or an elevator is needed, please communicate with KANEKO staff prior to the performance. Seating for the second half is on the main floor. The movement has been specifically designed for the seating arrangement, and visibility will be different depending on where you sit. You will have a unique perspective of the show, no matter where you are seated.  Arriving early to select your seat is highly encouraged.

Limited tickets are available for these performances. Once tickets are sold out, there will not be a waitlist or ticket resale. Seating is on a first come, first serve basis.

About MOVEMENT: Presented by KANEKO and tbd. Dance Collective, the MOVEMENT series will present site-specific, multidisciplinary performances focused on modern and contemporary dance.  Performances will investigate the choreographic process, foster collaboration, and challenge audience perceptions of dance as an art form. There is a universal nature to the human condition; movement found within dance can be one of the most powerful tools of communication we possess and provide the medium in which we connect.

About tbd. Dance Collectivetbd. is a non-profit, modern + contemporary dance collective founded by a group of artists who wanted to create, explore, and perform movement together.  Operating under the belief that movement can be a platform for communication and connection, it is our mission to provide accessible dance experiences through performance and education that encourage dialogue and challenge perceptions of dance as an art form.

With a creative process + vision built around exploration, we work with artists and organizations throughout the community to produce multidisciplinary movement based productions that feature site specific choreography and unique collaborations.  Our work is highly imaginative, diverse in content and structure, and seeks to discover the possibilities for performance within unconventional spaces.
