Rain Ross Dance via Crowdrise

BENEFITING: Rain Ross Dance
EVENT DATE: Jun 15, 2011
Rain Ross Dance has been selected to participate in the SB-ADaPT Festival, an international performance festival taking place in June 2011 in Santa Barbara!
The Festival is structured like all those of this nature in the U.S. The host company puts in all of the time to make the event happen and covers the costs associated with production and promotion; the artists collaborate by sending in an application, making the art, and covering the costs of travel and lodging. It works out great because it saves us the cost/trouble of booking a theater and promoting the event, and the process guarantees that there will be an audience.
The work that has been selected for this Festival is entitle 'Requiem'. It is a beautiful and soaring contemporary ballet solo, created for Chelsea Sprague, that investigates the idea that in loss there can also be happiness. The photos and video are from this solo (photos taken by Debra Townsend).
