UPDATE ON THE DANCE PALACE COVID-CATHARTIC EVENT:
Our intention with creating this event is to express catharsis as a community through ART. Sometimes, catharsis takes time, so although we’ve had lots of enthusiastic responses, it has been brought to our attention that people would like more time to prepare their performance submission. With that in mind, we’ve decided to CHANGE THE EVENT DATE from this November to February 12, 2022 at 7PM (with an interactive learning tree open during the day of February 13 as well). We will now be accepting music/poetry/storytelling submissions until January 16th.
If you’d like to submit a performance, you can:
- Record your own video and attach it along with the submission form
- Schedule a session to videotape your performance by emailing email@example.com to record at the Dance Palace during one of the following dates:
- Tuesday 11/9 from 12pm-3pm
- Sunday 11/14 from 10am-3pm
- Wednesday 11/17 from 9am-12pm
- Saturday 12/4 from 10am-1pm
- Wednesday 1/12 from 10am-3pm
We hope that this event can be done both in person and live-streamed. As the date approaches, we will be sharing more details!
We look forward to expressing ourselves together!
– Dance Palace Art Committee
Please join us in a creative and supportive community gathering, as we continue to move forward into our new reality. We want to share poetry, music, and story-telling about the COVID-19 experience.
Interactive Learning Tree (Open for visits Saturday 2/12 & Sunday 2/13 from 10AM-3PM)
Poetry, Music & Story-Telling Show Saturday 2/12 at 7PM (socially-distanced, outdoors at the Dance Palace)
Subject to change depending on health & safety concerns
The Dance Palace is organizing this event for community members to share their discoveries with our entire community through the arts… poetry, music, and story-telling performance, a participative learning tree experience, and children’s art.
The Dance Palace Art Committee is calling West Marin Poets, Musicians & Story-Tellers to lend us your words!
What poems did you write?
What music did you compose?
What stories are you telling?
Share your COVID-19 experiences from your perspective:
• What we have experienced: losses and gains, difficulties we have faced, connections we have missed while adjusting our lives
• Coping mechanisms (such as art, humor, cooking, nature, exercise, dance, music, poetry, and beyond) and adaptations we made during this time
• Insights to take with us as we continue to move on
• “Silver-linings” we’ve discovered
The Dance Palace Art Committee will select poetry, music, and story-telling from submissions to be performed either in person or virtually to a Zoom audience. All approved submissions will be documented and available for viewing on the Dance Palace YouTube channel. Submissions are due by January 16 at 5PM.
