Call to Artists: Come Dance with Us in February!

Thank you for your interest in performing with Sasso & Company in our annual Performance Series!

CallToArtists2018.png

We are looking for established contemporary and modern dance artists from the Boston community to share an exciting variety of work with new and returning audiences. Sasso & Company aims to further the sense of connectivity in our local dance community through this collaborative performance opportunity.

Following two sold out evenings of Dancing the Distance, Sasso & Company is back to share Deeply Rooted with you!

Deeply Rooted explores the nature of attachment and our visceral reactions to such relationships. In psychology, attachment theory attempts to describe the dynamics of long-term and short-term interpersonal relationships between humans. Moreover, the feeling of security, anxiety, and/or apathy has a direct relationship to how our bodies react to one another. Deeply Rooted deconstructs attachment through movement, gesture, and soulful dance expression.

Sasso & Company invites you to propose a new work or revisit an old work that connects to this theme and, if chosen, share the stage with us in February 2018!

What you need to know:

  • Proposed works may not exceed 10 minutes.
  • Technical needs should be minimal; basic lights and sound will be available, any props are the responsibility of the artist.
  • Each artist will be allotted a tech/dress time slot (TBD).
  • Each artist/company will be responsible for selling a total of 10 tickets at $25/ticket to the performance. If tickets are not sold, then the artist/company is responsible for paying the remainder of the ticket cost.
  • For any tickets sold above the 10 required, artists will be compensated 25% of the face value of the ticket.
  • Deadline to apply: January 15, 2018

How to Leap 3,000 miles: Dancing the Distance

I naively thought that once I started my company and had a season, that things would sort of roll forward from there.

I would have an audition, gain some new dancers, create more work, and have more performances. I knew that it would always be hard work., even the big, established companies such as Paul Taylor Dance Company, continually seek to grow and engage audiences in new and innovative ways (hence the change to Paul Taylor’s American Modern Dance).

I am excited to pour myself into Sasso & Company, but I did not anticipate I would be directing my second season from across the Atlantic Ocean.

Why You Can’t Stop Worrying When Creating a Self Funded Dance Show

I am all at once nervous and proud. In just a few short weeks, this dance show has come together. In September, when most companies are getting into their regular rehearsal schedule, I was contemplating if I would create anything at all. By December I was in the studio with two of my dancers creating a duet and experimenting with ideas surrounding love styles and Sternberg’s triangular love theory. As the work started coming together, I realized that I really wanted to produce a season and introduce my work as an independent choreographer and artistic director of LaceySassoDance/Sasso & Company.
