4 of Seattle’s most promising choreographers create 4 new works in the pressure cooker of just 4 weeks at Velocity’s Bridge Project — turning Velocity into an intense hive of urgency, excitement and dedication, kicking off Velocity’s 20th anniversary year. This year’s performance features exciting new work by emerging Seattle artists: Stephanie Liapis, ilvs strauss, Nathan Blackwell, and Ashleigh Miller.

Before arriving in Seattle, Stephanie Liapis danced with major US dance company Doug Varone & Dancers. Through the Bridge Project she creates a new group work in part through improvisational investigation exploring displacement, and a deep desire to create wide-open spaces. ilvs strauss (Dance Magazine “Top Performances of 2014”) brings her critically-acclaimed theatrical wit and imagination to a work investigating text based movement (Dance Narrative) in depth, playing with the layering of TEXT/SUBTEXT/SUPERTEXT. Nathan Blackwell brings a queer, inter-media approach to examining the horror of existing in an infinite universe that has no concept of our humanity, and in which we exist as nothing more than molecular constructs orbiting in space. Ashleigh Miller explores the psychological process of despair, descriptions of patients experiencing euphoria and transcendent peace before plunging into a seizure, and kaleidoscopic hallucinations that mimic the self-organizing patterns of neurons.

This year we are happy to continue the Bridge Project UW Dance Residency, a partnership of Velocity and the University of Washington Dance Department. This award goes to a graduate of the University of Washington who has been choreographing in Seattle, outside of school, for three years or less. Stephanie Liapis is the 2016 award recipient
