Real Time – First Friday Performance Series at Danceworks

Next performance: Friday, February 3

Tickets: Pay What You Will – you value live arts, we value you.

Andrea and Daniel Burkholder, creators and curators of the ongoing, first Friday performance series, Real Time, return the event to Danceworks on February 3, 2017 at 8:30pm. This Real Time features guest artistChristopher Elst, theater fight director and co-founder of Theater Red.

The Burkholders continue their commitment to offering a consistent, affordable, imaginative, and professional live performance option to the city with this month’s installation incorporating bit of artists learning from each other. Andrea and Christopher have been exchanging lessons in aerial and stage combat in order to create two duets, one in each of their expertise. As the evening unfolds, the two will also reveal some of the “magic” that makes stage combat so real for the audience. Daniel and Andrea will also offer a duet utilizing the inherent tension in duo aerial work and showing where that tension connects and transitions into partnering on the ground.
Always with a focus on the art of movement, Real Time includes aerial arts, dance, music, improvisation, and conversation in an informal setting to bring a breadth of artistic performances to new and returning audiences. Previews and excerpts of our shows can be found on theYou Tube channel, Real Time: MKE.

All shows in the Real Time series last about one hour. To end the evening, join the artists for drinks, provided free of charge, and conversation afterwards.

The performance series is completely funded by its open-priced ticket structure. The cash-only tickets go on sale beginning at 8pm and are available pay-what-you-will, where the audience puts it’s own value on the live art it comes to see. While NOT a donation format-everyone must pay- the payment is meant to reflect what each individual can afford.

We now offer live streaming of Real Time on Periscope (click here for details)* for those who cannot attend.


These projects are supported in part by a Danceworks Space Grant. The Danceworks DanceLAB continues its mission to support local artists by offering Space Grants for independent choreographers who would like to produce their own shows in the Danceworks Studio Theatre, or develop their own new work.
