About The Event

Selcouth Dance Theater Company presents MARK, a dance theater performance about individual and collective power and the possibilities that arise from each action small or large. Inspired by street dance vocabularies, everyday gestures and contemporary dance perspectives, MARK explores the power of connection, the limitations that we bring to ourselves and the solutions that we can find together. Our choices leave marks, setting whole series of actions into motion. What MARKs do we carry? What MARKs do we leave behind? The performance on Friday, January 19 is followed by a Q&A facilitated by Tula B. Strong.

About the Company:

Selcouth Dance Theater Company was founded by Artistic Director Marianna Varviani in 2016. www.selcouth.info

Mission Statement:

"In Selcouth we believe that art can change the world! We create projects to invoke, empower, and inspire the people around us. Our mission is to shed light to the space in between our knowing and unknowing ways of being. To help us un-learn, let go; of movements, beliefs, ways, perspectives that we didn’t consciously choose, and to recognize the limits that we might have unwillingly accepted, internalized, and embodied. We share works that help immerse ourselves in freedom, and its unlimited possibilities. To discover joy and the inherent capacity to select and shape whatever we desire, whether it’s creating a moment, a dance, or a new idea!

Our core ideals revolve around understanding, appreciation, respect, and liberation. We share high-quality performances, educational programs, and interactive art experiences, based on contemporary issues. Through our projects, we hope to bridge concert, street, commercial and academic cultures. We hope to connect with and invite audiences of all backgrounds, ages."
