ODC Theater brings adventure and irreverence to "regional touring" with the first-ever Walking Distance Dance Festival. A three-day, Fringe-esque event, the festival will utilize three performance spaces within ODC's two buildings. Modeled on its 2010 InnerState Project in Willits, CA (in which three performance venues were within walking distance of each other), the festival will overlap with Dance/USA's annual conference, this year held in San Francisco (see "Dance Matters"). There will be 16 performances from 12 artists, including LEVYdance, Shinichi Iova-Koga's inkBoat, and ODC's artist-in-residence, RAWdance. ODC/Dance will perform, too: Founder Brenda Way's slyly humorous Waving Not Drowning (A Guide to Elegance) draws largely from a 1963 French manual on female decorum. No need for you to worry about decorum, though--all you'll need is a good pair of walking shoes. June 29-July 1.
