Description

Join us for the return of the 7-Day Dance Festival — a beloved Bellingham-based community project! Dancers and choreographers of all dance styles and levels of experience are invited to come together and create new work. This week-long creative process will culminate in two performances open to the public on Saturday, September 17 at 5:00 and 7:30 PM at the Firehouse Arts and Events Center. The content of this show is still yet to be known. 7DDF invites you to take a risk on this unique audience experience, and witness the creativity that emerges.

 

In addition to live performances, this year’s 7-Day Dance Festival will include films created during the week by participants in the “From Anywhere” track. The pandemic presented certain barriers to connection but, through creative problem-solving and shifting technological norms, we have found new ways to make art with friends near and far.

 

Inspired by the internationally touring 48-Hour Film Project, 7DDF is a unique opportunity for dance artists to create. “One of the biggest barriers to making work can be the lack of a deadline. This festival aims to bridge that gap and give dancers a chance to play, not over-think their choices, and perform something new.” - Juliette Machado, Festival Coordinator

 

NOTE: Masks required for audience members.

 

REFUND POLICY: Tickets may be refunded/transferred up to 12 hours after purchase. After this window, all tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Bellingham Repertory Dance

Established in 2005, Bellingham Repertory Dance is a dancer-run and directed 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that strives to bring vibrant, contemporary dance to the community. BRD is an ever-changing collection of versatile individuals from an array of backgrounds working toward new goals and skills every season. BRD encourages dialogue amongst current and new collective members to shape the next stage in the company’s story. The collective creates opportunities for accomplished artists to perform and create works by both established and emerging choreographers. BRD encourages and facilitates collaborative opportunities across disciplines within the Bellingham arts community and offers both community classes and annual youth programs. BRD also facilitates master classes with guest artists, the 7-Day Dance Festival, and occasional rehearsals open for public viewing.

Participation in the organization is open to all community members, while the artistic members of BRD are selected each season through audition. All artistic members share performative, educational, and administrative duties. Each season, BRD elects a board, and a leadership team of returning members to serve as liaisons for the five branches of the organization: Education, Performance Planning, Communications, Fundraising, and Administration. Members are expected to attend monthly all-company meetings, quarterly Ethics & Equity meetings, monthly subcommittee meetings and weekly company classes.

BRD is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. For funding the company relies on ticket sales and fundraising events, as well as monetary and in-kind donations from friends, family, and supporters of dance. Please visit our support page to make a donation.
