Dana Lawton Dances (DLD) HOME is using Kickstarter to fund an evening length performance of live music, video installation and choreography that will be presented October 23 & 24, 2015 at The Center Stage Theater in Santa Barbara, CA. The program revolves around the central theme of “home”, presenting contexts, relationships, and images that serve to trigger the audience’s thinking about what “home” means to them and to others in their world. The DLD performers range in age from 23 to 68. The multi-generational company highlights diversity of ages in the dancers, and inspires viewers to experience the art forms of dance, music and film to expand notions of what a dancer looks like, and challenges traditional standards of age and body type.
HOME premiered at the Flight Deck in Oakland, CA in April 2015 and toured to the Crescent Arts Center in Belfast, N. Ireland in July. DLD is excited to bring their unique blend of music and dance to Santa Barbara.
Funds raised will cover the cost of touring expenses including lodging, food and gas for the fourteen member company traveling from the Bay Area.
