CROSS-GENRE DANCE ON RIDICULOUSLY SMALL STAGES

The Small Stage 2016–17 season offers a myriad of exciting, new works featuring a unique group of artists that will electrify audiences.

Since 2002, Dances for a Small Stage (Small Stage) has wowed their viewers by tearing down formalities and creating intimate, raw scenarios in unconventional venues. Each Small Stage show is a collection of fresh and innovative dance works that are 5–7 minutes in length. Over 16,000 people, many who’d never before experienced dance, have attended their shows to date.

An incubator for developing works that are distinctive both for their artistic excellence and innovation, Small Stage encourages risk-taking, collaboration, and experimentation with technology, while creating a safe space where artists and audiences can connect. Since their inaugural show, they’ve presented diverse styles of dance, including contemporary, ballet, hip-hop, Chinese traditional, Indian classical, burlesque, urban street, ballroom, flamenco, bhangra, tap, belly, and all genres of music, including classical, rock, new music, and jazz.

Dances for a Small Stage 34 kicks off the season at the ANZA Club with Pop This! featuring a range of popular dance styles.

Back by popular demand, Small Stage 35: The Valentine’s Edition returns in February 2017. Janet Smith said it best last year in her review of the show: “…It’s got way more variety than that box of chocolates you were thinking of getting.” Don’t miss Small Stage this season!
