Greetings! Thanks for visiting In Noon on Kickstarter.  

In Noon is a new migratory dance collective gearing up for its first two intensive work periods this December and January. During eight intensive work days, three of our four choreographers will collaborate with sound-artists, writers, and dancers from all across the country to generate the first three performance pieces of our company repertory! 

Imagine a rustic, cozy room in an alpine environment, filled with blankets, chairs, and clocks...Our first three pieces explore the world of Edward Weston's photography, the insinuations of a contracting muscle, and more. They will form the foundation of a repertory that will be performed at the Shared Choreographer’s Concert at the Dance Complex in Cambridge MA, Feb. 4&5, in other venues this spring and summer, and at our first evening length company showing in June, location TBD.

We have arranged some studio space and all housing for the three choreographers, two sound artists and fifteen movers who are working on this project. We're looking to Kickstarter to raise $4200 to fund travel, technical support and remaining space reservation for these first two intensive work periods.

MORE ABOUT US:
In Noon is a migratory dance collective with bases in Boston, MA, Ann Arbor, MI, Oberlin, OH and Portland OR.  We train and work independently, and come together to create pieces in short, intensive periods, then shelve them until the next work opportunity. We'll perform our finished repertory in short tours and residencies throughout the northern United States. We hope to form mutually beneficial relationships with our funders and weave ourselves into the fabric of our respective communities, engaging in a vibrant exchange that is both local and far-reaching.
