ABOUT THE ADaPT
In June of 2011 we launched our first international dance and physical theater
The SB-ADaPT (A Dance and Physical Theater) Festival.
We originally envisioned a weekend of two different shows at Center Stage
Theater featuring 16 different companies with time to network and maybe offer a
It grew into something HUGE. We called it the kindly beast.
We put out the call and instead of 16 companies we wound up with 50 +
companies/independent artists and their collaborators from 23 different
cities and 5 different countries. Over 150 artists were served!
Instead of one weekend the event wound up spanning three weeks.
The image of one master classes grew into five: Kristen Hatleberg taught an
outdoor workshop in drawing/dancing/communication, Dudley Brooks a clowning for
dancers class, Ramya Harishankar - Indian Dance, Sinan Simyat a master class in
the community and one at UCSB in his distinctive and original process Meditative
The thought of it happening in one city expanded to include three:
Santa Barbara, Goleta, and Venice Beach.
The image of events happening at one space expanded to eight:
- Center Stage Theater, the Pescadrome, the Electric Lodge, the Paseo Neuvo
Mall Amphitheater, the Contemporary Arts Forum, East Beach, Alice Keck Park
It nearly wiped us out - but we survived and lived to tell
Initially we thought, never, never, never again...
Then we thought, well never again THAT way and began to brainstorm about
different ways of doing the festival.
One notion that surfaced was that of having it in different places.
One thing led to another and lo and behold...
