Dancing Literate Project

This annual festival features performances by multiple emerging or established artists, curated by Summation Dance. DLP aims to bridge the gap between the artist and the viewer by offering insight into the choreographic process and by providing an interactive experience in which the audience is encouraged to engage with the companies firsthand.

Each performance includes:
• A performance by multiple emerging or established modern dance artists curated by Summation Dance
• A moderated panel discussion and an audience Q&A led by prominent figures in the dance world
• A mini-lecture on 'What to Look For' in Dance
• A free performance and class for children for local public schools (Summation Dance follows the NYCDOE Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in Dance)

Past Participants include: Suzanne Beahrs (Suzanne Beahrs Dance), Sidra Bell (Sidra Bell Dance New York), Claudia Anata Hubiak (The Anata Project), Peter Kyle (Peter Kyle Dance), Andrea Miller (Gallim Dance), Kendra Portier (BandPortier) and Sydney Skybetter (skybetter & associates).
