Kitchen Sink Fest Showcases Dance and Theater Tech Collaboration

Produced by Ben Levine, Kitchen Sink Fest features 22 of DC’s most daring dance makers who combine the elements of design, technology and dance. The performance takes place July 30 – 31.    

About the Program

Kitchen Sink Fest is a mega-collaborative movement-based performance project with theater technology and design as the rudiment, exploring the power of the “outside eye.”  This evening of 50 fast-paced, one-minute pieces, juxtaposed with 10 meditative installation works, features the work of Erica Rebollar, Tia Nina, ReVision dance company and many other of DC’s most daring dance-makers.

One-minute dance collaborators will create “dances by democracy,” teaming up to distill longer works into their most essential, interesting, exciting, surprising and memorable moments. Installations will dismantle the traditional theatrical structure and give audiences a necessary respite from the full tilt frenzy. While lighting, sound, scenic and multimedia design elements are accepted as critical components to bolster choreographic works, Kitchen Sink Fest tips the traditional balance of significance between the movement and the design.  Several “dances without dancers” will take place on stage, focusing on the technical elements and featuring no fully visible performers.
