B+B Dialogue
created + performed by Greta Grineviciute + Agniete Lisičkinaitė
B and B are two platinum blond girls from Lithuania (like twins) who like to dance, sing, travel and spread love all over the world. Grineviciute and  Lisičkinaitė discovered B and B in Ireland and have been following the journey of these two characters as they travel the world and meet new people in various cities and towns. B and B will be in Southern Vermont for two weeks, and their dance adventures and their stories will be captured on film and transferred to the stage through B+B Dialogue.

Florence Rice Hitchcock and the Theory of Soft Earth
choreographed by Sara Smith + performed by Candice Salyers
This multimedia performance created by Sara Smith (Greenfield MA) combines dance with animation and mock documentary to explore ideas and the interconnectedness and indeterminacy through the story of Florence Rice Hitchcock, a nineteenth-century geologist who has visions of twentieth-century science. Florence’s theory of the Soft Earth relate to Smith’s own questions and feelings about connections between climate change, social justice, and human responsibility. Smith is interested in the ways that understanding a historically rooted path to our current moment can enable people to imagine hopeful futures built in collaboration across communities.

Sunday July 16 @ 3PM

Voice and Vessel
created + performed by Hanna Satterlee, Delaney McDonough + Caitlin Scholl
Sound, movement and performance artists Delaney McDonough (Maine), Hanna Satterlee (Vermont), and Caitlin Scholl (Maine) are joining together in a two-state collaboration to discover their relationship to action/reaction, silence and sound. In Voice and Vessel this interdisciplinary dance-based trio will create a moving tableau that uncovers how we visually/sonically/physically voice and express in different ways, and how we each uniquely carry information in the vessels of our minds and bodies.

created + performed by Ellen Furey + Malik Nashad Sharpe
NO NATIONALISM is the beginnings of a duet between Malik Nashad Sharpe (London/NYC) and Ellen Furey (Montreal). The research comes out of the desire to aestheticise plurality-in-practice by fiercely rebuking insurgent nationalism. It is an attempt to detail both the affect and the effects of neoliberalism, as well as to address the artists’ longing for multiculturalist futures. NO NATIONALISM will premiere at Theatre La Chapelle in Montreal and at the Hackney Showroom in London in Spring 2018.
