About the Event
Tucson is invited to an evening of contemporary dance under the stars. Hawkinsdance proudly presents Pleiades Dance Concert in the Park to be held March 14, 2020 at 6:30pm, at the DeMeester Outdoor Performance Center in Reid Park. This event is FREE and open to the public!
The concert will feature artists who represent the forefront of contemporary dance today, both regionally and as part of the national landscape. In addition to choreography by Artistic Director Shelly Hawkins and the Hawkinsdance company dancers, Hawkinsdance has commissioned Charlotte Adams to set a show-stopping duet which will premiere at the event. Adams was an integral part of the Tucson dance community as one of the founding members of 10th Street Danceworks, and is now returning to the desert after her tenure at the University of Iowa Department of Dance.
The show will also feature a curated selection of dances by artists who have submitted their work to an open call. Hawkinsdnace has been accepting submissions from across the country and will announce the curated show line-up on February 1st.
This Concert is FREE and open to the public, and is sponsored by the Arts Foundation of Tucson and Southern Arizona, funded by the City of Tucson and Pima County.
