As a preview of the Choreographer’s Showcase May 15-17, Arova Contemporary Ballet will be performing several pieces, arranged by up and coming choreographers from around the country at the Continental Bakery on April 30.
Encorps! will feature performances from some of Birmingham’s finest artists, poets, musicians and dancers.
A good portion of this event will feature an “Are We There Yet?” style talk show focusing on the ways in which arts are supported in Birmingham, and how citizens can work together to ensure that artists have access to the funds and resources to continue creating a cultural scene. Liesa Cole, Ellise Pruitt Mayor, Jamorris Rivers and others will gather together to share their experiences, struggles and desires about making art in Birmingham.
Tickets are $15 each. For more information, visit www.alabamadanceexchange.org.
