Hampshire Dance Program Announces Annual Fall Performance 'Design and Chance'

Presented by the Hampshire Dance Program with students from Amherst Regional High School, as part of Hampshire College’s Family and Friends Weekend

The Hampshire Dance Program will present its annual fall dance performance as a sponsored event of Hampshire’s Family and Friends weekend. Open to all and designed to be inclusive, fun, and interactive, "Design and Chance" will be an experiment in sharing the creative-decision-making process with the audience in what the program describes as a "thrilling Choose Your Own Adventure dance experience." The performance will be staged on Friday October 21, 2016 at 8 p.m. in the Hampshire College Main Dance Studio/Theatre, Amherst, Mass.

The program intends to demonstrate to audience members how a dance piece is made, as a group of current Hampshire students, alumni, and teenagers from Amherst Regional High School’s Dance Ensemble will allow their choreographic processes to collide and develop live with input from the audience. The evening will culminate in a performance of the work that the audience has helped to quilt together. The performance is presented by the Hampshire Dance Program in partnership with students from Amherst Regional High School as a part of Hampshire College’s Family and Friends Weekend.

Reservations are recommended and may be made by calling 413.559.5889 or emailing $5 minimum donation. Handicapped Accessible.
