Asking for Change

When: Thu., June 30, 8 p.m., Fridays, 8 p.m. and Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through July 9 2016

As the inaugural artist in Jump-Start’s new INKUBATOR program, choreographer, dancer and director Stephan Gaeth developed a short piece he originally created in 2014 for the performance company’s 8x8 series (an assortment of eight-minute works staged in an eight-foot cube). Employing six performers to represent different sectors of the homeless population, his movement-based project Asking for Change seeks to offer “a glimpse into the unspoken cycle of our society’s attitudes toward our ‘invisible’ neighbors.” Following Thursday’s opening night performance, community members active in issues related to homelessness will be on hand for a dialogue with the cast and audience.

Price: $10-$12
