Cultivate was a tremendous success, fulfilling its mission to grow the community for contemporary dance in the North Country! From the opening night concert at SOCIAL 2055 by Vicki Brown, to the sold out house at the White Mountain School on the 14th, audiences and artists alike were enlivened and energized by the convergence of dancers, art-makers and concert-goers on the tiny town of Bethlehem, NH. Above are just a few glimpses of the day as seen through the intuitive lens of Arthur Fink.
