Projections: dance, poetry, and visual art
Apr

to Apr 15

Projections: dance, poetry, and visual art

Enjoy an evening of dance, poetry, and visual art on April 13-15 at the Western Gallery at Western Washington University (parking available in lot 17G behind the Fine Arts Building). Amidst the gallery’s exhibition of work by Ibram Lassaw, BRD explores the movement, colors, and textures of Lassaw’s work. The show will also include original choreography by BRD dancers, with inspiration from poetry by writers from around the country and abroad. Projections explores the complexities of artistic expression as each artist and audience member bring a distinct lens to their interpretation of the art before them.

This interdisciplinary concert follows BRD’s 12-year history of collaborations with community artists and poets since its inception in 2005. WWU dance faculty member, Susan Haines is choreographing two new works with BRD dancers to be performed amongst Lassaw’s projections of painted glass tiles as displayed in the gallery. The miniature, abstract paintings transform into monumental light images when projected on a wall’s surface, offering a dynamic and lively setting for contemporary dance. The artistic partnerships continue as BRD celebrates nearly a decade of collaborations with the Chuckanut Sandstone Writers Theater. Poetry featured in Projections was selected by BRD’s in-house choreographers and is serving as the context for premiering contemporary dance works. 

$15 student | $20 general | $25 dance lover

Dance lover tickets include a donation to our volunteer-run nonprofit. Thank you for your support!
