CHOREOLab 2015 will be held at San Diego State University on Thursday, January 29, 2015 from 6:00-8:30PM in conjunction with La Jolla Music Society’s Dance Series presentation of Wendy Whelan-Restless Creature.

The panel, consisting of world-renowned choreographers Kyle Abraham, Joshua Beamish, Brian Brooks, and Alejandro Cerrudo, will offer artistic and entrepreneurial feedback following the performance of four pieces by local dance-makers.

THE CHOREOLab PROCESS
This is an incredible opportunity to share your work in front of four of the most acclaimed choreographers working today: Kyle Abraham, Joshua Beamish, Brian Brooks, and Alejandro Cerrudo.
PRESENTATION AND EVALUATION
Four selected choreographers each share their works, for a duration up to five minutes, before the panel and a public audience. Each of the panelists will provide comments related to perceived strengths and weaknesses of the pieces.
CONSIDERATION OF PANEL COMMENTS
Following notes from the panel, the choreographers and dancers will convene in separate studios for a half hour to consider the panel’s comments. They may choose to re-choreograph some of their work or leave it as it is.
FINAL PRESENTATION AND DISCUSSION
The choreographers and dancers return and share their work again, incorporating any changes brought about by the panel’s comments. The choreographers are invited to reflect before the panel and audience on changes they might have made or the rationale for not making any changes. Finally, the audience will be invited to join the conversation and will be given the chance to offer notes and observations.
