***Please read the information below before purchasing your tickets***
“IN SITU” is an original dancework performed by Kathy Dunn Hamrick Dance Company, Austin’s award-winning modern dance company.
For two years, we’ve danced on water and in the middle of a big open field. Now we’re moving to an indoor venue at Cafe Dance, our home studio, where we will perform for small audiences. Seating is limited to 36 guests, which is 70% of usual seating capacity.
Because our concert is right after the Thanksgiving Holidays, we’re going to be extra vigilant with our Covid protocols. All guests must show either proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test taken within 72 hours of attending our event. Masking will be required of all attendees. Our dancers might not be masked; however, they will be rigorously tested.
The lobby is small, so we’ll ask guests to wait outside in the fresh air on the covered sidewalk until 10 minutes before showtime. To protect the dance floor, we’ll ask everyone to remove their shoes and leave them in the lobby. Wear your favorite socks!
THERE IS NO LATE SEATING. Late seating poses a risk to the dancers (and latecomers) in this particular studio setting.
December 3 7pm-7:45pm
December 4 5pm-5:45pm

HOW TO WATCH A KDH MODERN DANCE PERFORMANCE LIKE A PRO
IF YOU ARE NEW TO MY WORK
Don’t worry about “getting” anything, just watch. I’m interested in people and their stories, and my dances are almost always about people doing people things, so my best advice is to watch what happens. It’s similar to people-watching at the park, the mall, the airport, restaurant, beach or wherever.
WHAT YOU MIGHT SEE
I’m into movement invention which means I go into the studio and investigate new ways of moving. If you want, look closely for detailed, complex, sometimes hidden movements and a high contrast between dynamics like super-fast and super-slow. You might also notice that I break things up and then re-group.
IF YOU WANT MORE FROM YOUR EXPERIENCE
Try this tip I learned from a friend: Watch, notice what piques your interest, and then ask yourself why. Why does this particular moment grab your attention? Why does that one make you feel a certain way? This helps you get into my thoughts and better understand my choreographic intentions.
THERE’S NO WRONG ANSWER
It’s up to you to decide if my work is funny, poignant, moving, odd, eerie, disturbing, beautiful or all of the above. It is fine with me if you see something or feel something completely different from what I see and feel. You get to bring your own history to, and see your own reflection in, the work. In a sense, every dance is tailor-made for you. My hope is that you will feel something and that you’ll be intrigued enough to come back and experience the next work.
