Event Information

Next Fest NW is Velocity’s new works series celebrating what’s happening in contemporary dance, movement-based performance and dance cinema in the region. Next Fest NW was established to support new work and investigate different approaches to dance. Through Next Fest NW, Velocity aims to foster a robust community where artists have access to facilities, support and creative exchange.

This year’s event takes on the theme of disruption. People love to talk about it, but what does it really mean to be disruptive in these times? We live in a time of political disruption, or a deep yearning for it. What alternative do you envision and want to manifest? What do you want to interrupt or change? What is “disruption” in dance?

This year’s artists are:
Michael “Majinn” O’Neal Jr. and Angel “Moonyeka” Alviar
Taryn McGovern
Sarah Hogland
Alicia Mullikin
Sean Rosado
Seth Sexton
Alisa Popova
Jordan Macintosh-Hougham (Next writer-in-residence)
