Virtual Pathways Dance Festival 2020 is a virtual dance festival featuring cutting-edge archived dances produced by Alyssandra Katherine Dance (AKD), Co-Presented by ODC Theater. The roster will feature works spanning genres, highlighting the breadth and diversity of dance styles in a new digital format. AKD’s mission is to bring visibility to dance companies nationally, giving chosen companies an opportunity to showcase work to new audiences and widen their reach at no cost. We seek to use this festival as a platform to provide financial support to contributing artists and support innovative works through ticket sales. There will be 4 evenings, each with a different theme: Identity, Healing, Home/Sanctuary, and Time/Scope.
Every performance will host a prolific and established company or choreographer during the live-stream performance including works by Helen Pickett, Yu Dance Theatre, Complexions Contemporary Ballet, and Doug Varone and Dancers.
One portion of all revenue will be split among participating artists, while the other portion of ticket sales will be given to support ODC to maintain its sustainability during the Covid-19 Pandemic.
Virtual Pathways Dance Festival is produced by 3 formidable female choreographers Marika Brussel, Carly Lave, and Alyssandra Wu. Brussel is a ballet choreographer who reshapes contemporary narratives, bringing ballet into the 21st Century. Lave is a contemporary choreographer whose work seeks to question the self through visceral immersive performance. Wu is a freelance choreographer whose work explores issues dealing with East Asian identity and mental illness.
We plan to hold a Q and A following or prior to each performance and hope that viewers will plan to attend this real time live-stream as well.
