Fertile Ground is a NON CURATED showcase for emerging and/or established artists produced with full production values. The evening consists of work shown by five or six choreographers, followed by a moderated discussion - over wine - that integrates the choreographers, dancers, and audience members. Participation by choreographer is required. This series offers an excellent opportunity for participants to share new and developing work, then to receive informative feedback about it in a supportive environment.
