Life takes curves, and the trajectory one follows may be shallow or wide, straight or not. It is how you choose to take these curves that informs the next decision, outcome.

At the heart of this project is an artistic collaboration between Sonia Plumb Dance Company, Cuatro Puntos and the community. Curving Into the Light includes several sections from Ameen Mokdad’s album The Curve. Open rehearsals, workshops and Q&A’s with Ameen and the artists will be held throughout the summer leading up to the premier.

The performance includes live music.

What your support means to us

Making dance requires money and time to pay the dancers, designers (costume, sound, projection), space rental for rehearsals. This all happens BEFORE the dancers set foot on stage to perform – or in these times of COVID behind the camera. Hundreds of creative man/woman hours are logged. Ticket prices, whether live or streaming, never fully cover the cost of creating dance. Please consider donating generously to ensure our dancers and team of creators are paid. We thank you from the bottom of our heart to the tips of our toes!
