Green Space is pleased to offer a diverse roster of new/ emerging artists in September.

"In a busy dance performance weekend, one in which you will miss at least two things you "have" to see, it is still worth the gamble to see what talent Valerie Green/Dance Entropy is nurturing with her Take Root series at Green Space." -Quinn Batson, OFFOFFOFF Dance Review

TAKE ROOT, now in its 6th season, aids in the continued development and performance of new dance work of various aesthetics by providing choreographers with the opportunity to be produced in a full-length or paired evening of work. This once a month series supports dance makers by providing our venue, Green Space, with full technical and marketing support.

September 12th & 13th, 2014 at 8:00pm
Admission: $15
Tickets are available at the door or online at
Amy Cova Dance: Amy Cova's work "such trees as these" explores sustainability of body, of environment, and of creative process. Through a movement vocabulary that constantly punctuates the highly physical with a quiet gestural sense, the dancers shape a world of turmoil, confusion, hope, and happiness into a single theatrical experience. The darkly humorous and charming performers share the space with an original sound score composed by Alvin Hill.

TeatoLocal presents "venez m' aider (come to help me)" choreographed by Joel Sherry and performed by Cynthia Bueschel Svigals and Joel Sherry. "venez m' aider (come to help me)" presents a battle-torn landscape where two people discover each other and join together to await a rescue that never arrives. While they wait for the unknown, the signals they each send out are received by the other and translated into a message of support, assistance and compassion. In "venez m' aider" TeatoLocal uses character-driven dance and performance to examine the human need to help.


FERTILE GROUND is a monthly new works showcase for emerging and established artists now in its 9th season, producing the work of over 50 choreographers each year. This non-curated performance event features five or six choreographers each evening and includes a post-performance discussion with wine and cheese, moderated by Green Space's Artistic Director, Valerie Green.
