DanceNOW Festival Encore
Presenting the top ten works selected by the audience during the DANCENOW JOE's PUB FESTIVAL
Each evening during DANCENOW JOE'S PUB FESTIVAL run, from Sept 5 to 8, the audience will vote for a Challenge winner (the 40 festival artists are asked to take the DANCENOW “less is more” mantra truly to heart and create a choreographic work of five minutes or less that makes a concise artistic statement) who will receive a free weeklong creative residency at DANCENOW Silo on Kirkland Farm in Pennsylvania.
The TOP TEN CHOREOGRAPHERS whose work best meets this challenge will be invited to participate in ENCORE! on September 15. One winner from the entire festival run, selected by DANCENOW producers and advisors, will receive a $1,000 creative development stipend, a free weeklong creative residency at Silo on Kirkland Farm, and a 20-hour space grant from the Gibney Dance Center.
The Good to Go Girls ( Dash Board Dreams ) will perform Pre-Show for The FESTIVAL ENCORE!
