DANCE UP CLOSE/EAST BAY
With the help of two grants in 2008 from the Zellerbach Family Foundation and the Berkeley Civic Arts Commission, Shawl-Anderson Dance Center is pleased to now be running its own presenting series as well at the Center: Dance Up Close/East Bay.
The series offers local audiences an intimate space to see professional level work, and supports local choreographers who want to produce their work for several weeks in a row.
The Series was launched in late May 2008 with Paufve Dance and its annual Bare Bones performance, followed by:
November 2008 - Nina Haft and Company'si production of 'SKIN: One Becomes Two'.
February 2010 - ahdanco's Home Season production of "here, look".
November 2010 - Kimi Guthrie's Dandelion Dance Theater's production of "Mama/LOVE".
August 2011 - Antoine Hunter's production of Urban Jazz Dance.
October 2012 - Melecio Estrella and Andrew Ward's FOGBEAST production of "Move Here"
Please see our Performing/Events page for upcoming shows.

Release Your Quest
choreographed and created by Troy Macklin
in collaboration with dancers and visual artists
Deeply in us, hidden behind life and duties, we all have a part of us we never show to others. A primitive desire, a feeling, a quest we would like to reach. Through the arts: dance and any artistic medium, let's share who we are and what we want. Let's release our Quest.
Troy Macklin in collaboration with the dancers.
Leah Curran, Rebecca Demotte, Jerry Christopher Lin,
Troy Macklin & Vera Schwegler
