Marking the 5th year of tbd. as a group of artists making work together, this evening length performance will feature selected choreographic works from repertory spanning 2014 - present. Choreography featured will represent pivotal moments within tbd. as an artist driven collective. These moments help define who we are as an organization, what kind of work we want to make, and how we feel the the presentation of dance can be redefined.
More importantly, these choreographic works are about encouraging the growth + support of modern and contemporary dance in Omaha. tbd. dance collective developed organically based on a need for more performance and choreographic opportunities for dancers in Nebraska. From the beginning, our goal was to not only create, but to develop work that challenged perceptions of dance as an art form, and lived outside of theaters and traditional performance spaces. Since then, we have presented movement in galleries, bars, stairways, parks, warehouses, and in ponds. We have created work utilizing a parachute, headlamps, bike lights, full body nylon bags, wooden sticks, a giant modular platform on wheels, and in response to several exhibitions. We have collaborated with live musicians, filmmakers, photographers, lighting designers, and organizations throughout Omaha to create accessible + unique dance experiences for our community.
From 2014 - present, tbd. dance collective has created 60 original works, 12 evening length productions, worked with 75 collaborators, and created or participated in dance experiences in which 3,500 people have been in attendance. We launched Movement, a collaborative performance series with KANEKO in which we create and present original dance productions in conversation with their exhibitions. We initiated DANCE CLUB, an affordable movement class hosted monthly at OutrSpaces open to individuals of all ages and levels within the community.
Moving forward, we have a strong vision for tbd. dance collective and what we can accomplish within the community of Omaha. Our goals are to create more movement opportunities for artists in the region, pay professional rates to collaborators and dancers, and eventually, have a space of our very own to generate new work and host performances + classes.
All proceeds will go towards general operations, workshops, dancer stipends, and programming for our 2019/2020 season.
Please, join us in this journey, celebration of movement, and all things tbd. dance collective!
