Back this year, join us in the culminating festival performances for the TRAIN Module in SFD+I 2022, where Seattle choreographers created five new pieces with participants over an intensive three-week immersive program. The performances will feature new pieces created by Zoe Scofield, Markeith Wiley, Mark Haim, Jaret Hughes and Victoria Watts. This is your chance to experience work by some of Seattle’s most beloved choreographers, celebrate the participants in this year’s festival, and get a peek at dancers who will become mainstays on Seattle’s dance stages.
SFD+I is made possible with generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, and the King County Festival and Events Fund. It is also supported by our community of individual donors, community partners, and arts advocates.
