Dancemakers marks its 40th Anniversary season with the World Premiere of AROUND, the spring home show, created by Michael Trent and Dancemakers, and for the first time on the mainstage, artists from the company’s Emerging Dance Artist Project (EDAP), doubling the size of his company to ten dancers.
AROUND will continue Trent’s exploration of boundary-pushing performance through contemporary aesthetics, cross-disciplinary dialogues and collaborative engagement, the hallmarks that inform the creative process at Dancemakers. AROUND delves into the disconnect between symmetry, perfection, uncertainty and ambiguity. Presented in the round, a floor to ceiling veil will encircle both the audience and performers providing an intimate space for exchange.
Founded in 2009 by Trent, EDAP is an intensive training program to ease the transition between academic practice and full time professional life for contemporary dance artists.  Over five years the project has taken many forms providing cross disciplinary training for 42 participants in summer intensives, weekend workshops, training scholarships with Dancemakers, and creation/performance presentations with the company. This year’s format expanded to include the opportunity to collaborate with Trent and the company artists over a six-week period on a major new creation.
