Cleveland-based Inlet Dance, founded in 2001 by executive/artistic director Bill Wade, has a mission to use dance as a tool for personal development. Its process of creating performance pieces, which values inclusion and diversity, is based on collaborative input rather than an autocratic choreographer “setting” pieces “on” a company. It aims for interactivity between its performance and education programs.
As the company’s promotion says, “All of Inlet’s repertory speaks creatively about human life issues and does so in a life-giving manner. The company presents a wide aesthetic range of works that speak to what could be, rather than only what is.”
To support its work, Inlet is hosting its 4th annual Big Bash at Cleveland Public Theatre’s Parish Hall with the theme “Launching Bold Ideas.” The evening will feature dance performances to give guests a taste of what Inlet does, “creative activities” (beware! Will they make YOU dance?), a raffle, wine, beer and hors d’oeuvres.
Tickets are $40 for those under 35; $75 for others.
