COCO DANCE FESTIVAL NOV. 26th to 28th 2010

Choreographers’ Collective - nicknamed COCO - is a group of independent choreographers - Dave Williams, Nicole Wesley, Nancy Herrera and Sonja Dumas – which offers performance support for choreographers working in unconventional ways in Trinidad and Tobago. COCO will host its second annual dance festival from Friday, November 26th to Sunday, November 28th – this time in a series of unusual spaces.

The 2010 COCO Season, called the Moving Movement Museum, is a series of dances presented in two backyards of Woodbrook which already have a tradition of performance – Alice Yard, at 80 Roberts Street, and, two blocks away, Bohemia at 33 Murray Street. The first half will be at Alice Yard, and the second half will be at Bohemia. Patrons will be treated to a gallery of live performances created by an A-list line-up of both established and emerging choreographers: Dave Williams, Nicole Wesley, Rachel Lee, Gregor Breedy, Akuzuru, Anika Marcelle and Sonja Dumas, as well as choreography students from dance programmes of the University of Trinidad and Tobago and University of the West Indies. “Even the intermission is exciting,” said COCO co-director, Sonja Dumas. “Movement will lead you from one space to the other.”

Showtimes: Friday, November 26th and Saturday, November 27th – 8:00pm; Sunday, November 28th – 7:00pm. Tickets available from the choreographers+performers and from the organizers. Kindly call 622-4426 to make reservations. Security will be provided.
