3 Live Performances with Post Performance Discussion
“3 at 3” is an afternoon showcase of works in progress featuring live performances by Vermont Dance Alliance members, followed by a facilitated audience discussion and light snacks! Come see a new contemporary work by Danielle Tekut, a movement in stillness by Andreas John and a postmodern/experimental/interactive work by Delaney McDonough. This afternoon is curated by the Vermont Dance Alliance and presented in partnership with RiverArts.
Danielle Tekut received a BA in dance from Smith College and is currently pursuing her MSW from the Smith College School for Social Work. Her work explores the narratives we hold/embody through solo, duet, and improvisation forms. She is a member of and creative collaborator within ERGO movement. Carry your longing is a duet performed by Jessie Owens and Danielle Tekut. It exists at the intersection of memory and yearning, familiarity and longing, acceptance and unrequited hope. “What do you long for? And what do you look like when you’re longing?” (Contemporary)

What movements of grace lie in the space between our cells, between each other, in the silence between notes? What art is alive in the realm between mediums? Born of deep listening, from solitude and silence. From one heart to another, this piece is a transmission unique to each of us. What is alive in you in this moment? And now? (a movement in stillness)
