what artists say about being at Cultivate

Cultivate provided me with an experiential haven for performance and movement practice.  (Kathryn McNamara)

It was rejuvenating and inspiring to move, explore, and create with this lovely group of people.  It was a rich artistic experience combined with an intimate relationship with the Bethlehem community. (Katherine Keifer Stark)

I think what was most valuable for me was to be surrounded by professional and supportive artists in the same field, which made it easier to take a risk in presenting such new work.  This also made for a warm audience/performer relationship. (Sally Bomer)

Come to the beautiful White Mountains of NH this August and share your work with a growing community of dancers, dance makers and lovers of dance!  Deadline to apply is May 1st.

Sally Bomer offers a poetic glimpse of “Quotidian”

Each showing of Quotidian is an accumulation of gestures and imagined spaces, one from each of 30 days leading up to and including the day of performance, with additional inspiration from the particulars of venue and viewers, so the  process of creating the piece leads literally to the moment of performance.
