Dance Source Houston Presents Mind The Gap XXVII
Dance Source Houston (DSH) continues the organization’s 19th season with the 27th edition of Mind The Gap, an evening of works by local dancemakers, on Tuesday, December 5 at 7:30pm at Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston (MATCH). The program will include works by DSH members Mark Aguilar, Brittany Nicole Bass, Adam Castañeda, Kyle Rucker, Stacy Skolnik, and Lori Yuill. The evening will feature solo and ensemble contemporary and modern works created and performed by dance artists based across the Greater Houston area.
The co-production style format of Mind The Gap offers dancemakers the opportunity to share their work with audiences alongside fellow artists on a shared program supported by Dance Source Houston. Participating artists receive assistance in production planning and audience development skills without taking on the full burden of self-production so they can direct their energy and focus toward the works presented onstage.
Mind The Gap was created in partnership with MATCH to support independent choreographers and small dance companies presenting their work. The program offers participants high production value, low administrative burden, and shared ticket income. Begun in January 2017, Mind The Gap has provided a performance platform for more than 115 local dancemakers to date, providing opportunities for dancemakers and connecting audiences with new dance experiences.
Tickets to the performance are available now at matchouston.org on a pay-what-you-can sliding scale for both in-person an livestream viewing, starting at $15, with all choreographers receiving a percentage of total ticket sales.
