Hip Hop Dance Festival
CALL FOR WORK
Deadline for submission: June 15, 2009
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL:
The J.U.i.C.E. Hip Hop Dance Festival is an annual showcase of cutting-edge street dance choreography and hip hop culture produced by J.U.i.C.E. (Justice By Uniting In Creative Energy) at the outdoor, 1241-seat Ford Amphitheatre. It will take place on Sat. Oct. 3rd, 2009.
JHHDF unites the rhythmic virtuosity and extreme physicality of street dance to â€œexpand [hip hopâ€™s] creative horizonsâ€ (Lewis Segal, L.A. Times).â€ Artistic Directors Amy â€œCatfoxâ€ Campion and Jacob â€œKujoâ€ Lyons bring LAâ€™s freshest street dance choreographers to the stage to celebrate and to reinvent hip hop culture.
WHAT WEâ€™RE LOOKING FOR:
I have constructed a gigantic loom in my Project Space in Lincoln Heights, workspace.
The warp spans the entire length of the front room, using the walls for tension and support.
I am hoping that people will bring their own materials, everything from yarn to old clothing, bed sheets, fiber, old bathing suits, plastic bags, and anything else that can be cut into strips and stuck into this very simple apparatus.
It will only take 5 minutes for me to teach you how to weave, and the more the merrier. You can weave one inch, or more, it's up to you.
