Hoedown Hall is a performer-driven, dance curation project that evolves over the course of a month in four consecutive 3-hour events. AUNTS invited 17 artists to perform in the first event; these artists were responsible for each selecting an artist to represent them in the next event; those artists selected were responsible for the line-up of third event, and so forth. The evening is the typical, over-stimulated AUNTS style where multiple performances of varying mediums may be happening simultaneously; everyone can social dance.

AUNTS is about having dance happen.  The dance you’ve already seen, that pops into your head, that is known and expected and unknown and unexpected. Dance that seeps into the cracks of street lights, subway commotion, magazine myth, drunk nights at the bar, the family album, and the couch where you lay and softly glance at the afternoon light coming in through the window. AUNTS constantly tests a model of producing dance/performance/parties. A model that supports the development of current, present, and contemporary dancing. A model that expects to be adopted, adapted, replicated, and perpetuated by any person who would like to use it.  Where performing can last five seconds or five hours; never a “work in progress.” Where the work of  performing is backed by the “land of plenty” rather than “there is not enough.” Where the work of  AUNTS defies the regulation of institution, capitalism, and consumerism. AUNTS is about being gracious in this world. Thank you.
