“Making Space : Taking Place :: Taking Space : Making Place” Dinner + Dialogue

March 16 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

"Making Space : Taking Place :: Taking Space : Making Place" Dinner + Dialogue

Making Space : Taking Place :: Taking Space : Making Place

Born from site specific explorations focused on cultivating delight for the unsuspecting passersby, Contradiction Dance Theatre’s merry band of collaborating artists brings you a spellbinding collection of dance theater works. What must we discard and destroy in order to make space for better ideals to take place? For whom? Who makes the rules? What is the shape of the next? As an intervention of reflection, curiosity, delight, and provocation, we invade this colonial construct to bring you moving meditations of home, community, and greater goods.

This performance is part of #DanceAboutDC, a site-specific series by Contradiction Dance Theatre that puts dance in fresh places and spaces as a means of expanding the audience for dance in general; and, for our work specifically. #DanceAboutDC has performed at Malcom X Park, The FDR Memorial, Freedom Plaza, Dupont Circle, several random crosswalks, at a grocery store in Brookland, and in the nooks and crannies of Joe’s Movement Emporium in Mt. Ranier, Maryland.

We are also taking this opportunity to thank our current Season Supporters and Season Sponsors who generously donated to keep us dancing this year. We are in the final stretch of our annual fundraising campaign: LIMITLESS IV. If you would like to become part of the CDT family, please consider making a donation when you RSVP by selecting either “Season Supporter”, “Season Sponsor”, or donation tickets when you RSVP. Thank you for your enthusiastic support!

We are honored to be a part of the 202Creates Residency Program, Winter 2019.
