MEN IN DANCE announces new company title and mission statement

2019 Adjudicated Choreographer showcase to be presented October 4 and 5 at the Velocity Founders Theatre on Capitol Hill

MEN IN DANCE
2019 ADJUDICATED CHOREOGRAPHER SHOWCASE
VELOCITY FOUNDERS THEATRE
October 4 & 5


As society continues to evolve The Board of Producers for MEN IN DANCE (formerly Against the Grain | MEN IN DANCE) have adopted some changes to its mission statement and company verbiage to reflect a more welcoming and inclusive approach to its staffing, selection of artists, and its continuing focus on challenging its audience! The Company continues to pursue diversity and excellence for its semi-annual Festival of Men in Dance and for its current project: the third biennial Adjudicated Choreographer Showcase.

First, Against the Grain has been dropped from the company title; the new title is simply MEN IN DANCE. This change reflects the progress that has been made in male-identified dancers being more accepted by society as a whole as professional dance artists. MEN IN DANCE still believes that the unique dynamic viewpoint that men bring to the concert stage is extremely valid and the company plans to continue to celebrate that uniqueness it its Festival and Showcase events.

MEN IN DANCE has also changed its mission statement to reflect its push for more diversity in style and background of its male-identified performing artists. Both women and non-binary individuals have been choreographing for the company for many years and throughout our productions the vast majority of our technical and backstage staff have been women. Going forward this will continue to be an important part of the picture for the upcoming Adjudicated Choreographer Showcase.

Second, the new mission statement is: MEN IN DANCE is committed to seeking, supporting, and presenting cutting edge male-identified dance in all of its colors.

Lastly, The 2019 Adjudicated Choreographer showcase will be presented October 4 and 5 at the Velocity Founders Theatre (1621 12th Ave #100) on Capitol Hill. There will be showings at 8pm on Friday, October 4th and at 5pm and 8pm on Saturday, October 5th. Tickets for the showcase are available via strangertickets.com and via the companys website, menindance.org. Tickets are $20 for the Friday & Saturday 8pm shows and $15 for the Saturday 5pm show. Tickets will also be available at the door on a first-come first-served basis 1 hour prior to show time. MEN IN DANCE will be presenting five choreographers, all new to the MEN IN DANCE roster. There will be a 3-person professional panel for each of the two evening shows. These adjudicators will give feedback live, following the presentation of the five new pieces. A moderator will lead an audience/artist talkback at the Saturday matinee performance. Audience members will have the opportunity to write down and give feedback as well. This gives our choreographers the chance to hear what others interpret in their works, and they also get insight into how they might strengthen their work. This is an opportunity for the audience to interact with the artists in this educational, and very entertaining, event!
