About the Festival:
SB-ADaPT Festival events include:
The SB-ADaPT Festival (A Dance and Physical Theater Festival) is scheduled to take place in Santa Barbara, CA June 15th-June 19th, 2011. A first of its kind in the Santa Barbara community the Festival celebrates the power and dynamism of fostering local, regional, and international community providing artists with the unique opportunity to not only share their work but engage in discussions about the artistic process, funding challenges, opportunities in different cities, and other engaging topics. The Festival's focus is on providing opportunity to "boutique" vintages as opposed to "major" labels and is a collaboration between the host company (SonneBlauma) and Festival Participants.
The Festival is designed like other Festivals of this nature in the United States.
The host company undertakes the workload and financial burden of producing all of the Festival events and the artists collaborate by funding the creation of their art, travel expenditures, lodging, and do not receive pay for their performances. It is an ideal exchange for smaller companies and lesser known artists who do not have the resources to produce work in other cities and do not have name recognition outside of their communities to draw an audience to their performance venue.
Having participated in their share of Festivals of this nature SonneBlauma built upon this model and integrated a few other ideas to take it a step further. Some elements they are including that are not typical of other Dance Festivals in the United States of this nature include:
Note: Performances by our Israeli artists are free with seating available on a first come first serve basis.
