camp is a weeklong experiment in choreography, art, and collective living that culminates in live performance. Curated by AUNTS, camp brings together artists from assorted disciplines to work autonomously alongside each other to create an immersive dance/performance/party—a dynamic whole no more or less important that its individual parts.
“When you go to AUNTS, you go to something like a party: a gathering that orbits around multiple, overlapping performances, structured to facilitate chaos. As its current organizers… say, ‘AUNTS is about having dance happen.’” — The New York Times
“[AUNTS] remains one of the dance world's pleasures.” — Time Out New York
About the Artists
Founded by James Kidd and Rebecca Brooks in 2005 and organized by Laurie Berg and Liliana Dirks-Goodman since 2009, AUNTS is a roving platform for dance and performance guided by core principles of collectivity, cooperation, and sharing. Adapting to any architecture, AUNTS generates a constantly shifting environment where artists simultaneously produce/present work while audiences engage at will, creating their own experiences through chance encounters.
AUNTS is a project of Before Your Eyes Inc., supported in part by the Yellow House Fund.
