About Made in Seattle:
Velocity’s Made in Seattle (MIS) program uniquely provides multi-dimensional direct support to artists over a period of a year or more, with particular focus on the critical Development Phase of new work. It is tremendously challenging for local dance artists to find the support necessary to create new work. The Made in Seattle new dance development program is dedicated to growing the Northwest’s creative community by commissioning, producing and presenting evening-length dance works by some of the most talented and experimental artists from our region. This program fosters excellence in the Seattle dance scene by supporting extended collaborative projects that bring together Seattle artists and inter/national leaders in the field.
Dancers include Matt Drews, Patrick Kilbane, David Harvey, Thomas House, Lavinia Vago, Kate Wallich and Andrew Bartee. Tickets ($20 advance, $25 day of) can be purchased through the STG website.
