Brittany Bass Announces Epoch

An evening of Dance, Film and Conversation

Houston, Texas— December 7, 2021

Event Details

Epoch is a culminating presentation of my Dance pop up series: Epoch. This performance allowed me explore the common themes related to coming of age. I am looking at the search for identity, acceptance, growth and figuring out who my community is, and building that network of supportive people. 

Using technology, specifically videography, has been a new and daunting element that I have chosen to incorporate into my artistic playground.
“They have come, in many ways, to define our lives. We interact with screens all day long, and our interactions with each other as well as ourselves have come to rely on those digital portals.” (PILAR GERASIMO)

Through conversation at the performance, I hope those not as familiar with my work get to know who I am as an artist and person. This interaction is my way of inviting you on my journey towards the choices that I take as I further develop my artistic voice.

“Dance started as a communal experience and I would like to somehow create that same sense of community and accessibility with this performance. My goal is simply to share my art with all who are willing and wanting to embrace it.” 

I invite you to an intimate viewing of dance via film and live performance on Saturday, 12/18 at 7:30 pm. – Tickets – https://www.metdance.org/brittany-bass-independent-choroegrpaher
