Three of Seattle’s most promising choreographers create new works in the pressure cooker of just four weeks at Velocity’s Winter Bridge Project.

“The Bridge Project is one of Velocity’s great gifts to the city.”—The Stranger  

This year’s resident artists are LanDFormsVladimir Kremenović, and Beth Terwilleger. Inspired by ideas ranging from mudslides to Washington state flora to reality TV dating shows, all three of these artists come to Velocity invested in exploring the possibility of empathy between audience and dancer, and investing in personal experience as potent and vital source of creative expression.

The Bridge Project is a very special program to Velocity because it epitomizes our relentless commitment to supporting new generations of dance artists. Each choreographer receives the artistic, financial and administrative support they need to develop their work, in addition to a cast of dancers and artistic mentorship. In programming The Bridge Project, Velocity aims to enhance the artistic growth of the choreographers, and provide an entry point into the local performance scene for dance artists new to the community.

LanDFormsWebSiteSmallLanDforms (Danielle Doell + Leah Crosby) Under the moniker LanDforms, Leah Crosby and Danielle Doell’s productions span dance, theater, music, sculpture, and horticulture. LanDforms’ often funny, sometimes tragic, always unusual performances explore the absurdities of human relationships, nostalgia, and the intersections of power, control, and love. Crosby was born in upstate New York to artist parents; Doell went to 13 years of Catholic school in the Midwest. Their early socialization around what is “normal” regarding gender, power, sex, and identity was, to put it simply, different. As LanDforms, they examine how their disparate histories build their present and future expressive bodies.

LanDforms began on Martha’s Vineyard, where Crosby and Doell lived for two years. Danielle joined the Seattle dance scene in 2017, knowing Leah would soon follow. They collaborated long-distance and during several developmental residencies while separated.

Now, LanDforms is excited to be a Seattle-based company, making work within the PNW’s thriving performance communities.

BethTerwillegerBioSmallWeb

Beth Terwilleger started choreographing long before her formal dance training began.  Her wildly active imagination cultivated elaborate dances and creative works both in her mind and in her practice.  She continued to use and hone these skills well into her long professional dance career and beyond into her choreographic endeavors.  The focus of her art has always been the escape of the artist into the character and the quest for bringing the audience along with it.
Beth is passionate about seeking new inspiration/opportunity and has recently focused on the future of dance and how to keep humanity in the arts and technology. She has continuously been described as hard working and dependable, yet wildly creative and wants to use these traits to bring new elements to the dance world and find synergy between dance and the rapidly evolving world around it.
