City Arts Fest is proud to present one of the first Seattle performances by Israeli choreographer Danielle Agami. A teacher, and former member of the internationally-renowned Batsheva Dance Company, this emerging choreographer will present a subtle and sublime performance for 10 dancers in a highly-trafficked but secret location in downtown Seattle. The specific location will be quietly announced to ticket-holders the week of the festival. Those adventurous patrons who seek out this special performance will encounter a crowded location, find a spot to stand, and wait to see what is revealed through the crowd. Which people are from the company, which are general public? What is dance, and what is "normal" movement? Is the person next to you also in the audience, or are they are dancer? Do passers-by stop and stare, or do they even notice the piece happening? As the performance continues, Agami's beautiful company of ten, talented, nationally-sourced dancers, reveal themselves with precise, exquisite movement. Do people always notice art, when it is very close to them? After 10 years of creation in Tel Aviv, Agami has moved to Seattle to start Ate9, a dance company who has been working with Cornish College of the Arts, and is currently in a residency with Velocity Dance Center.
