We are excited to partner with the St. Petersburg Dance Alliance to present this wonderful event as part of St. Petersburg Arts Festival this month! Two of the works employ new original music by local composers Elizabeth A. Baker and Sean Hamilton.
Our Town: A Moving Dance Tour of St. Pete
A project of the St. Pete Dance Alliance and Dance Linkages
September 17, 2017 @ 6:00p
Shuffleboard Courts, and various locations in downtown St. Pete
Our Town is a curated series of original, short, site-specific dance performances that occur in and near multiple historic and iconic locations throughout downtown St. Pete. This performance is presented as part of the SPFestival 16. The audience travels from piece to piece, on a guided, walking tour that begins at the Shuffleboard Courts and ends in the Mural Alley along 6th and 7th Streets. Choreographers include Helen Hansen French, Kellie Harmon, and Andee Scott of the St. Pete Dance Alliance, in addition to Elsa Valbuena, Erin Cardinal, and Alex Jones. Additional collaborators include the New Music Conflagration, with an original music composition by Elizabeth Baker that will be downloaded onto smartphones by audience members on site.
This unique evening of dance performances blends dance, music, art, architecture, and technology, creating moving public art in and around iconic and historic sites in our beautiful city. Produced by the St. Petersburg Dance Alliance and Dance Linkages, with support from the St. Pete Arts Alliance and Creative Pinellas, Our Town invites the audience to engage with dance and their city in new ways.
Our Town begins at the Shuffleboard Courts and additional sites include outside the Mirror Lake Library, Face the Jury, the open-air Post Office, Cycle Brewing, and the mural alley.
