The Hoover Dam Collective
Spoooooky news from the HDC
START! The Umbrella Collective is a group of three very talented choreographers, including our very own Breegan Kearney, who have banded together to produce their own work. What a brave and exciting endeavor! Come check out "START", their very first show, next weekend at the Chen Dance Center. Featuring the work of Breegan Kearney, Caitlin Dutton and Eli Tamondong.

For all of you artists out there...
HDC performer Tara Sheena has been involved with a grassroots initiative calledThe Brooklyn Commune, an attempt to reform the economics of cultural production. The Commune is conducting an artist census for the purpose of gathering more information about how artists in America make their money (and how we can change the economics of being an artist in the US!!) and would like to get as many young, emerging artists involved as possible. Please take the opportunity to check out the census when you have a moment, it is a very important initiative and will only take a few moments of your time!
