The Dance Up Close/East Bay program of Shawl-Anderson Dance Center presents Dana Lawton Dances and her company in their 10th anniversary performances. Artist-In-Residence at Berkeley’s Shawl-Anderson Dance Center in 2007, Dana Lawton Dances (DLD) was founded to bring together a group of dancers spanning a wide range of ages committed to Dana's artistic vision. A key focus of her work in the last decade has also been collaborations with musicians and composers to support her choreographic explorations. The anniversary performances will highlight Lawton’s dancers, feature live music and revisit a decade of Lawton’s dances, which have become a beloved part of the fabric of East Bay contemporary dance.
Michael Armstrong, Leah Curran, Garth Grimball, Leah Hendrix-Smith, Dana Lawton, Jerry Lin, John McConville, Colin McDowell, Robin Nasatir, Vera Schwegler, and Jennifer Smith.
(NOTE: FB won't allow for an event beyond two weeks. There is a performance, closing night on Sunday, Oct 22.)
