Workbench is a choreographic works-in-progress series in Northampton, Massachusetts. Each month the work of 3-5 emerging to professional choreographers will be showcased. The performances will be followed by a Q&A lead by local artists, and scholars. Workbench will provide a much needed space and venue for local dancers to show work and receive feedback outside of the academic setting. Workbench will help to foster the development of a community/network of local dance and movement based artists and integrate dance into the greater artistic community of the Pioneer Valley.
Workbench will take place on the third Saturday of every month January 2014-May 2014 at 8PM at the Wild Life Sanctuary Studio at 221 Pine St., Florence MA.
Workbench is supported in part by a grant from the Northampton Arts Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
