Erick Montes/Danceable Projects Dance Performance
Pop Up Gallery* : 4:00- 6:30pm, FREE EVENT
"What you see is what you get /Lo que ves es lo que hay". An Erick Montes/Danceable Projects, M.O.H., S&S Production
Pop Up Gallery follows the concept that the hospitality businesses has been using since the early 2000s to expose their products to a wide range of customers. In the case of Pop Up Gallery is basically the same but inverse: audiences will encounter a wide range of art disciplines in one space, encouraging for the no over thinking of art as a whole but instead the pleasure of just experiencing it at once like a tasty scoop of ice cream or a well-prepared chicken chorizo "torta" down the street.
On this occasion Pop Up Gallery will feature works by Karla Carballar, Erick Montes and improvisational works by musician Zeb Gould, among other surprises.
Dance Performance* :7:30- 8:30pm, TICKET REQUIRED
Agora-Lítico is an interdisciplinary work in three acts, where the collaboration between music, light design and visual art come together in a poetic journey through Meditation, Manifestation and Realization.
Utilizing tools of creation as repetition and movement accumulation embedded in a full improvisation discourse, the artists navigate in the process of movement creation using this principle to play with movement as a metaphor, movement as instigator and movement as a physical/kinetic entity.
The show is an open invitation to the intimacy of the choreographer as individual and a window to the performing artists in the act of creation.
Led by Erick Montes, Artistic Director of Danceable Projects, alongside collaborators Sam Crawford, Jonathan Belcher, Karla Carballar and Zeb Gould the ensemble uses the stage as a catalyst to imprint their vision of the world and its realities. Is this world just a planet on orbit or perhaps a lonely man in the middle of an alley? Is this reality a result of us? Montes quotes best-selling author Junot Díaz, winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction:
The real question to it is not what happened at the individual level, the real question to me is: What happened at the collective level?
