It has been a whirlwind of an inaugural year for the dance company The Gray, and they are celebrating with their most ambitious evening yet. The company is incredibly honored to be performing at Behnke Center for Contemporary Performance, presenting one new and two previously performed pieces for two evenings, August 16 and 17 at 7:30pm. This evening, titled The Year, will take the audience on a ride from lighthearted whimsy to deep intensity through a carefully curated dance performance. Comprised of three works created for The Gray and choreographed by Artistic Director Beth Terwilleger, the night will focus on the audience and their individual, unique experiences with dance performance.
The Gray is so excited to be revisiting its first Seattle work with the performance of an excerpt from the piece at Seattle International Dance Festival. Showing alongside other inspiring Seattle creators, choreographer Beth is honored to be a part of such a stellar evening at such a prestigious event. More details:
