What we're looking for:
Hawkinsdance is seeking new or existing contemporary dance works to be presented in the Pleiades Dance Concert in the Park on March 14, 2020. Through curating this performance, we are interested in demonstrating diversity of form and subject matter and seek to provide a platform for those artists who have a clear vision. we are looking for work that is wild, unexpected, powerful, and thoughtful. Works may be technically challenging, conceptually innovative, challenging to current constructs or norms, or embody stylistic qualities that reflect the evolution of the art form. We do not have a set number of works we will be accepting but please consider that works over 15 minutes in length may be difficult to program.
