Momentum Dance Collective to Present Season 16 Debut

The debut performance from Momentum Dance Collective's Season 16 is a thoughtful glance into the greater visual arts world that inspires us to move in new ways.  Embody  is a unique, gallery-styled performance that blurs the lines of stationary and living art. Drawing from the artwork and artistic process of five Studio Artists at The Nave, eight new dance works are imagined by the company and presented to be viewed in-the-round. 

Original choreography from the Momentum dancers breathes new life into the dynamic work of some of Anchorage's finest visual artists. The audience will be free to walk around the space and enjoy the performance as if they were strolling through a museum, following their instincts to pause, sit, and move as they wish. 

Embody features artist Loren McCue painting live, and is inspired by the artwork of Nave Studio artists Graham Dane, Christine Sundly, Emily Longbrake, Mercedes Kashatok, and Melissa Shaginoff. 

Doors open with a gallery exhibit at 7:00pm. Performance begins at 7:30pm.

Cash bar on site.
