We are 50collective.

On April 26th, 2011, eleven international dancers from 50collective are invited to New York to perform in the Performance Mix Festival. This is only the beginning of a journey. For the next four weeks, we will be Passing Through five destinations – New York, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, and Seattle. Embodying the American spirit, we will travel by road, Crossing The Continent from East to West.

In each city we will perform Passing Through at traditional theater venues as well as site-specific outdoor public performances. Between cities, 50collective will spontaneously perform Passing Through at public parks, and in small towns. Passing Through is a performance of collective creativity. Dancers spiral around, fly over, and slide under one another, choreographing the dance as we pass through the space. We share this electrifying experience of dance with the public to entertain and inspire. Our performances connect dancers to the audience, uniting both in collective joy.

Collaborating with local arts organizations, venues and dance studios, we will lead workshops for dancers and the general public. Our workshops awaken people’s physicality, inspiring individuals to join each other in collective movement - a step towards a more collective world.

How will $10,000 make this all possible?

It will pay for cheap motels, fast food, regular gas and a rented van to drive across 14 states.

It will pay for a journey.
