inQUAD — Inclined Dance Project
August 23, 2019 - August 24, 2019
About This Show
inQUAD, presented by Inclined Dance Project, is a performance series featuring the work of four emerging female choreographers. These four like-minded artists share similar backgrounds, experiences, and creative theories but showcase uniquely different styles. Each choreographer’s distinct virtuosity and singular exhibition give way to a dynamic showcase of innovative and contemporary dance. inQUAD debuted in 2015 and aims to network, connect, and promote female dance makers in New York City.
The fourth iteration of inQUAD features the works of dance choreographers Alexis Robbins (kamrDANCE), Lauren Beirne (Lauren Beirne Dance Works), and Charly Santagado (mignolo dance), as well as Kristen Klein of presenting company Inclined Dance Project.
About the Artists
Inclined Dance Project, founded in 2009 by Artistic Director Kristen Klein, is an all-female collective that creates dance works of contemporary athleticism inspired by ever diverse human experiences. Approaching dance-making through a ‘set and destroy method’, Inclined allows the performers the opportunity to deconstruct material and incite dialogue, exploration, and personal contribution to a work. Kristen Klein’s choreographic works have been performed throughout New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, California, and in Japan, and the company has been featured in Dance Spirit Magazine, Critical Dance Magazine, offoffoff, and on Dancemedia.com. Inclined Dance Project started inQUAD in 2015.
Since 2015, kamrDANCE has been intricately fusing tap, percussive movement, and contemporary dance with humor to highlight unique female voices and investigate the necessity of supportive relationships, the female experience, laughter, and absurdity. Under the direction of Artistic Director and Choreographer Alexis Robbins, kamrDANCE has performed at venues across the northeast, including Woods Hole Community Hall, Triskelion Arts, Actors Fund Arts Center, Dixon Place, Center for Performance Research, Symphony Space, SMUSH Gallery, the Transit Museum (Downtown Brooklyn), AS220, and more. In addition to live performance, kamrDANCE has produced two dance films and most recently created an original film for One Day Dance’s second season. Robbins is currently a commissioned artist by Artspace New Haven.
