In the spirit of “gathering (n. / v.), To Gather supports and elevates the work of artists who use movement to excavate the rich stories that exist within the Black and Brown dancing body.
ARTE NOIR is especially looking forward to the upcoming performances of To Gather at On the Boards, featuring some of the most talented dancers and artists performing right now, many of them from Seattle or currently residing here, all curated by beloved friends, Nia-Amina Minor and David Rue.
To Gather is a celebration of dance artists residing and creating along the West Coast. Over two weekends, guest curators Minor and Rue invite choreographers and performers to convene and present new work to the Seattle community. To Gather supports and elevates the work of artists who use movement to excavate the rich stories that exist within the Black and Brown dancing body. In the spirit of “gathering (n. / v.),” this program encourages audiences and artists alike to witness, engage, and commune while supporting new works.
Week 1 (October 5 - 7) features the work of guest choreographer Maurya Kerr (tinypistol) & local Seattle artists, including Akoiya Harris, Symone Sanz, and Cipher Goings + Benjamin Hunter.
Week 2 (October 19 - 21) features the work of guest choreographer Bernard Brown (bbmoves) & local Seattle artists, including Jade Solomon Curtis, Emma Wambui, and Umalalengua Okan + Milvia Berenice Pacheco Salvatierra in collaboration with Naomi Macalalad Bragin.
