ADC Season 2016-17
Help us bring new contemporary dance works to the city of Atlanta.
Who we are…
Founded in 2015, Atlanta Dance Collective is a group of artists with a similar vision to create engaging contemporary work in the Atlanta dance scene. Dance Canvas 2015 served as the catalyst for Atlanta Dance Collective through the mutual involvement of Britt Whitmoyer Fishel and Sarah Stokes. “site.” choreographed by Britt Fishel, funded through INDIEGOGO and commissioned through Dance Canvas, premiered at the Rialto Center for the Arts and featured Sarah Stokes as one of the dancers. Fishel and Stokes share an interest in creating and performing work and wanted to build a collaborative group of choreographers, dancers, and artists to make dance in the city of Atlanta, thus Atlanta Dance Collective was born. Their 2016 season concert entitled Time + Itinerant was also successfully funded through INDIEGOGO and featured two guest artists Gabriella Dorado (ATL) and Caitlin Dutton (NYC) alongside Fishel and Stokes.
What we’re up to…
Atlanta Dance Collective strives to connect people through dance within the city of Atlanta. We provide opportunities for dance artists to create new work and engage with audiences in Atlanta, in order to build the community of contemporary dance. We are a dance “collective” meaning we are a group of artists who work together to present work of multiple artists and in multiple mediums.
We are extremely excited to share these new opportunities with you for our next season. This September, ADC has been invited to present work at Skwirlhaus; we will be performing a new work by Britt Fishel involving both film and live performance. We will also be producing our season performance in Spring of 2017 which will include work from artists within the company, as well as guest artists. Ourseason concert has been a successful way of bringing artists together in the Atlanta dance community by providing an avenue to present work in the city, and we would like to continue doing so. This summer the company will select a guest emerging choreographer to do a residency with our dancers creating a new piece to make its premier at our spring concert! And again, ADC will host the annual Opine Dance Film Festival, which had its first successful run this past March at Synchronicity Theatre in Atlanta, featuring both a student and professional adjudicated program! And these are just a few of the upcoming projects…
