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.

To Gather is a celebration of dance artists residing and creating along the West Coast. Over two weekends, guest curators Nia-Amina Minor and David 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.
