Help us realize our plans for the 45th anniversary of the company in the way we envision!
We have so much incredible work coming in 2020:
In the coming weeks we will be announcing the three CHIME mentees for 2020, who will enliven and enrich our Dance Lab starting in January. Your donation subsidizes the free studio time each artist receives so that they can experiment and create free of constraints.
In February we launch Encounters Over 60, highlighting the artistry and experiences of our dance elders. Guest artists Vicky Shick and Merián Soto will be sharing their wisdom and creativity through workshops, classes, and performances during each of their week-long residencies. Through your donations, we are able to ensure everyone has access to the work of these artists regardless of their finances.
In June, Margaret Jenkins and long-time collaborator Rinde Eckert will be premiering Migratory Passages, a new duet for ODC's Walking Distance Dance Festival.
In November 2020, the MJDC will be celebrating our 45th anniversary with our long-time dancers and collaborators. Your donation helps us pay our artists a fair and liveable wage in this region where the cost-of-living is skyrocketing.
We know it's been stated everywhere, but every dollar truly makes a difference in order for us to continue crafting new, collaborative dance works and offer innovative community programs that enrich the Bay Area arts community. Your gift will make a real difference in our ability to continue and celebrate!
