Ten Months out of a year, dance maker, curator and MC, Laurie Van Wieren, brings three dance makers of varying styles and experiences to the Bryant Lake Bowl Theater to share and discuss works-in-progress as well as finished dances with a lively audience. The mission of 9x22 Dance/Lab is to encourage and present all styles of dance exploration, and to foster engaged dialogue between performers and audience.
