7MPR Themed Dance Theater: The Fifth Midnight Performance (Application Deadline: October 1)

7Midnights Physical Research

7Midnights Physical Research: Themed Dance Theater


7Midnights Physical Research is dedicated to the exploration of 7 social issues: Class, Education, Ability, Sexuality, Race, Age, Gender. Seven performances will take place throughout the year, and each performance will cover two or more than three topics of these social issues through dance. Each choreographer's work will express one or more themes of the seven social issues aligning with their thinking of dance and society. 

We hope to bring out seven midnight performances during 2019-2020. Each midnight performance will present 8-10 (experimental) dance pieces created by different choreographers, addressing one or more social issues in our society. In this way, we hope we can participate in the broader discussion of the relationship between dance and society.
