A vivacious showing of live contemporary dance for a summertime celebration of the moving body and unabashed enjoyment of the senses.
SHIFT | Lush is a vivacious, one-night showing of live contemporary dance for a summertime celebration of the moving body and unabashed enjoyment of the senses. This production is curated with works that embody the essence of the season ~ ripe, bursting flavors; vibrant, shimmering color; long sun-soaked days; and cool, relaxing nights. The performance will include complimentary fruit-infused sparkling beverages and light, tasty bites to delight your palate.
Artists include Donna Jewell, Kelsey Paschich, Mariah Baker, lisa nevada and Marya Errin Jones, J. García Dance Company, Jean-Paul Weaver, and Nicole Corpion.
SHIFT | DANCE provides three opportunities a year for choreographers to submit work through an open call for entries via our SHIFT | ACCESS programming model. Each Access performance is curated and directed by one of the three co-directors. This provides a performance platform in informal settings, which fosters the creation of new works, development of works-in-progress, and experimental movement research. For each Access show, we donate a portion of our proceeds to a specific non-profit service organization. A portion of the proceeds for this production will be donated to the Malala Fund, a champion for girls’ education in the most vulnerable communities around the world. SHIFT | Lush is the final Access show of our 2017 Season, curated and directed by Jacqueline García.
