12 remarkable artists in inquisitive and personal performance.
Solo: A Festival of Dance is a one-of-a-kind weekend long exploration of the solo as self-expression; we invite you to explore this integral part of dance creation. The 2020 Festival will feature an evening length program that includes trail blazing performances from five internationally recognized artists.
Festival Artists: Jade Solomon Curtis, Allie Hankins, jumatatu m. poe, Adrienne Truscott, and Mariana Valencia.
In addition to the evening shows, there will be free site responsive durational performances happening throughout the building from seven local artists two hours before the evening shows on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. These programs have been co-curated by Dani Tirrell, a Black, Queer, Gender Non-Conforming movement-based artist, and will explore how the architecture of On the Boards informs making dance.
On the Boards will also be hosting a Friday evening artist conversation between Randy Ford and jumatatu m. poe, and a Saturday afternoon screening of an OtB.tv Masterclass by Dani Tirrell and Zoe Scofield.
Durational Solo Exploration Artists: Anna Banana Freeze, Laura Carella, Carlin Kramer, Michael O’Neal Jr. (Majinn), Noelle Price, Zoe Scofield and Emma Wheeler.
