 WestFest Top Floor

April 23-26, 2014

Four fully produced dance concerts held in Westbeth’s legendary top floor studio currently home to the Martha Graham Dance Company and formerly to Merce Cunningham Dance Company.  Each artist will have the opportunity to share a new work (10 minute max) in two nights of performance.  A $250 production fee is required for each artist who is accepted.  This cost sharing model helps to cover the rental fee of this historic venue as well as production expenses.

WestFest All Over Westbeth

April 27, 2014

One day site-specific guided dance tour. Each artist will be assigned a unique space in the Westbeth building in which they will have the opportunity to rehearse and build a dance (3-4 minutes max).  On the day of the show, groups of audience members will be guided from site to site to see the dances all over the building.  Past sites have included Westbeth’s inner and outer courtyards, long hallways, spiral staircases, the gallery space, the rooftop and the Martha Graham Studio Theater.
