Brittany Bass Announces Pop Up Performance Series: Epoch

A 9-month pop up series of dance performance running April 2021-December 2021

Houston, Texas— April 26, 2021

With great excitement comes the announcement of a local pop-up dance performance series: Epoch, presented by Brittany Bass. These pop-up performances will be hosted once a month, from April 2021 until December 2021, in different venues located all around the greater Houston area. Digital offerings, live dance performance and Q&A’s will be included at many of the locations.

Over the past year the way that dance has been viewed and experienced has changed. There was a sense of accessibility that has not always been in the experience of the art form. The way that dance performance was presented consequently evolved for Brittany and these free impromptu pop up performances are a response to the more communal way of sharing dance that she wishes to establish. 

“Dance started as a communal experience and I would like to somehow create that same sense of community and accessibility with these performances. My goal is simply to share my art with all who are willing and wanting to embrace it, without the worry of ticket cost, and travel to venue or anything else that might prevent someone from experiencing and enjoying the art form”

The April 30 performance is a soft launch of the ongoing series of pop-up performances. Information regarding location and dates for upcoming months will be updated (in true pop-up fashion) closer to the day of the event. 

*This series of performances is Funded by Houston Arts alliance SACI grant.
