WestFest All Over Westbeth: A Series of Site-Specific Dances

May 6th, 2012


On May 6th, 2012 WestFest will present the second annual WestFest Site-Specific Dance Festival throughout the intricate architecture of the famous Westbeth Artists’ Housing Complex in the West Village. Dance will decorate the hallways, stairwells, basement crevices, the laundry room, the courtyards, the engine room and the roof bringing life to a building dedicated to the arts. For more information on last year’s site-specific event, please go to the New York Times review at http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2011/05/03/arts/dance/0503WESTFEST.html.

This year’s site-specific festival will include the work of 10 to 12 choreographers who will be scattered throughout the Westbeth Artists’ Housing Complex, performing 5-minute works for audience groups guided through the sites by WestFest volunteers. WestFest is looking for choreographers to create original works for this event, incorporating a chosen performance site within the WestBeth Artists’ Housing Complex. WestFest is open to presenting work that incorporates live music, video installation, as well as experimental collaborations. Each work must be able to be performed multiple times in a row. If you would like to apply to be a part of WestFest all over Westbeth please request an application at westfestdance@gmail.com. Application deadline extended to FRIDAY FEBRUARY10th, 2012.
