About this event

Founded in 2007 in San Francisco, and a mainstay of the Bay Area's performing arts calendar, RAWdance's CONCEPT series salon expands to the Hudson Valley for the first time, planting roots at the Senate Garage in Kingston's Stockade District. The series serves a fresh dose of dance in the chic event space, all with a welcoming, living room vibe, complete with popcorn. Hudson Valley-based dance artists share works-in-progress and revamped repertory for intimate viewing.

Featuring works by:

  • Jillian Sweeney
  • Chris Black
  • Sondra Loring
  • Sarah Chien
  • RAWdance

For the CONCEPT series, choreographers are encouraged to share work at any point of creation, offering new perspectives into the artistic process. RAWdance’s Co-Artistic Directors Wendy Rein and Ryan T. Smith act as hosts between performances, serving trays of popcorn, sweet snacks, and a healthy dose of banter to complete the experience.

Online advance ticket purchases are recommended. Tickets will also available at the door. The CONCEPT series is a Pay-What-You-Can event. There's a $5 minimum to accommodate online ticketing, but if ticket fees are prohibitive for any reason, or if you would like to contribute an amount not listed, please email raw@rawdance.org and we will be happy to arrange a reservation for you.

“Contemporary dance as a chummy, pretension-free meet-up? That’s the winning concept behind RAWdance’s CONCEPT series, ...where new dances are served up alongside generous helpings of popcorn, cookies and coffee. Every iteration brings a unique mix of ideas and dance styles, but it’s always a low-key, highly entertaining event with effervescent emceeing by RAWdance founders Ryan Smith and Wendy Rein." — San Francisco Chronicle
"Buffets, sampler platters, tasting menus – all offer the chance to try an assortment of flavors. But if it’s an artistic experience you crave rather than culinary (though this particular event also includes some delicious food), RAWdance’s CONCEPT series, with its array of choreographic styles and textures, is for you." — Dance Tabs
