The 24 Hour Dances
Sat June 15 at 8 PM
Up to 20 artists will have 24 hours to conceive, create, rehearse and perform brand new works. Coordinated by Katherine Marino.
THE 24 HOUR DANCES will feature up to 20 Rochester-area musicians, choreographers and dancers, who will have just 24 hours to conceive, create, rehearse, and perform five brand new performance works. One of the biggest obstacles to creating new choreographic work is recruiting performers to dedicate their valuable time to a new project while working around ever-changing schedules. This project provides artists in the Rochester community the opportunity to focus intensely on their own creative development for one very full day - a minimal time commitment with real potential for both artists and audiences!
KATHERINE MARINO has been teaching and performing professionally for over 10 years. She holds degrees in Dance and Environmental Studies from Hobart and William Smith Colleges where she was awarded multiple arts and academic honors. Upon graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2012, Katherine won a Fulbright fellowship to spend one year teaching and studying in Argentina. During her time abroad, she continued training in a wide array of movement styles and circus arts. Upon returning to the US, Katherine joined PUSH Physical Theatre, where she combined her knowledge of contemporary dance with mime, circus, and theatrical storytelling. She has presented original dance-theatre work in the Rochester Fringe Festival and the International Shanghai Drama Festival, among others. Throughout her career Katherine has performed across the USA as well as in South America, Europe and Asia. She is thrilled to begin this new stage of her career working full-time as an independent multi-disciplinary artist, pushing boundaries of dance, circus, and physical theatre to create celebratory and memorable experiences.
Tickets $10 in advance, $10 students and seniors, $12 at the door
