K Dance will be a company-in-residence at Firehouse Theatre. After more than 20 years of nomadic existence, the residency provides K Dance with a permanent home. With this partnership, Firehouse gains dance programming that fits its mission to be an artistic home for performing art/artists from all disciplines. This is made possible with a generous grant from CultureWorks.

 

Core components of the residency include co-producing two of K Dance’s signature programs at Firehouse: The YES Dance Festival (a showcase of work by some of the hottest contemporary choreographers/dance companies) and SHORTS (a program of one-acts that integrate choreography into the storytelling). In addition, they’ll be creating new educational and performance programs with K Dance’s Artistic Director Kaye Weinstein Gary that focus on dance/movement theatre.

 

Firehouse’s Producing Artistic Director Joel Bassin says “we’ve had wonderful experiences with K Dance during the past two years that we’ve been the site of their dance and one-act festivals. Kaye’s expansive and energetic artistic vision will make a valuable contribute to Firehouse’s activities.”

 

K Dance’s Artistic Director Kaye Weinstein Gary says “this is an incredibly exciting opportunity that will help me advance my artistic vision in a permanent space and build K Dance’s institutional capacity with the administrative and production support of Firehouse.” This season’s YES Dance Festival will be 12/20 & 21. SHORTS 2020 will be in April.
