Described as a “pure, buoyant delight for audiences” by the Seattle Times, the Chamber Dance Company celebrates its thirtieth anniversary in October 2021. This year’s concert investigates the empathy, intimacy and confusion that comprise human relationships. The program includes choreography by Camille A. Brown (2010), Joe Goode (2004), Zvi Gotheiner (1992), Shapiro & Smith (1999) and Doug Varone (1988).

The ability to keep modern dance history alive and accessible to audiences here at the University of Washington and throughout the Northwest is only made possible through the financial support of individual donors, both large and small, as well as the College of Arts and Sciences.

Your gift to the Chamber Dance Company Fund will help sustain the Chamber Dance Company in its mission to present, record, and archive choreography of artistic and historical significance. Donations support the re-staging process and maintain CDC’s special collection of over one hundred modern dance treasures. View our directory of the Chamber Dance Collection today.
