Chop Shop: Bodies of Work A Contemporary Dance Festival
At The Theatre at Meydenbauer, Bellevue
Saturday, February 15th, 7:30 pm and Sunday, February 16th, 3:00pm
TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE BOX OFFICE ONE HOUR PRIOR TO SHOW!
Now celebrating its SEVENTH YEAR, Chop Shop: Bodies of Work is the only annual contemporary dance festival held specifically for the Eastside. Recognized as one of the most important dance events of the year, Chop Shop serves up a unique and prolific sampling of contemporary dance from leading national and international award-winning dance makers from the Pacific Northwest and beyond. The Festival features master classes and lectures by the Artistic Directors and Choreographers from the Festival as well as FREE Community Outreach programs (the Experience Dance Project in partnership with The City of Bellevue) geared to enhance the viewer's insight and experience. The Chop Shop Contemporary Dance Festival is dedicated to bringing great dance work to both new and seasoned audiences through experience, education and performance. Though each company/artist presented possesses their own individual voice, they are all unified in the contemporary language of dance and its power to stir the senses through the visceral moving image.
