The THING [the performance event created for Lion’s Jaw] is now its own event.
Green Street and New Movement Collaborative have joined forces to make this happen every 2 months of 2018.
WHAT IS IT?
For those unfamiliar with the concept, The Thing is a chance for dancers and performance-artists of all kinds to engage w one another in an informal experimental way and provide critical feed back to and for each other.
We split the time between pre-determined pieces that attendees want to show to one another and improvised pieces for those that want to perform but don’t have a current thing they’re working with. These improvisations are determined by the Thing staff.
Each piece is limited to under 5 minutes.
We end w a group talkback session so folks have a chance to ask for/provide feedback around the performed pieces. This is a chance for us to engage as artists and we encourage and expect honest + critical conversation!
Pieces can range from highly choreographed dance works of any genre to group improvisations and solos to more theatrical work or even readings and film-work. As long as it’s under 5 min. it’s on the table.
