As part of The Dance Complex's

SUMMER SIZZLE:

LUMINARIUM DANCE COMPANY

presents:

ChoreoFest 2014

ChoreoFest 2014. 24 hours of choreography and dance. In August at the Dance Complex!

2014 Festival Schedule

Friday, August 8 through Saturday, August 9, 2014

Concerts: Saturday @ 2:00pm and again @ 4:00pm

APPLICATION DEADLINE: MAY 16, 2014! - Go here for more information!

What is a 24-Hour Play/Dance Festival?

The 24-Hour Play Festival was created as a fun, caffeine-filled event where budding artists would write, rehearse, produce and perform a play in just 24 hours. In 2012, Luminarium Dance Company decided that Boston area dance companies should get the chance to participate in a 24-Hour Choreography Festival, a spinoff of the play festival, which would result in original new choreography created overnight. Everything is created and presented within the 24-hour (or less) time period, despite the obstacles and creative blocks that come with the challenge. Such a festival ultimately brings participants closer together, while giving its audience something to marvel at!

Luminarium Dance Company strives to produce a fun showcase of dance that will strengthen our collaborative ties to other local companies, gain publicity for all, and become an exciting outlet through which to give back to the community. Executed in the style of a 24-Hour Play Festival, the mission of the event will be to have the companies involved create and thoroughly produce a brand new piece of choreography to will be shown in a concert that culminates the 24-hour creation period.

All of the profits from the concluding matinee performances will go to enriching programming for a charity that focuses on providing arts-based experiences to underserved populations.

2012 Inaugural Participants:
1,000 Virtues Dance
Sarah Mae Gibbons & Renee Amirault
Luminarium Dance Company
Monkeyhouse
The People Movers
Synthesis Aesthetics Project

2013 Participants:
Impact Dance Company
Intimations Dance
Luminarium Dance
Monkeyhouse
Paradise Lost
