12 Minutes Max

After a three-year hiatus, 12 Minutes Max is back in a partnership between Base and On the Boards. A performance exhibition with a 30+ year history, 12 Minutes Max @Base will provide a platform for artists to showcase 12 minutes of material supported by limited technical elements. Performances are curated by different members of the arts community three times a year.

12 Minutes Max @ Base: All local artists, all new work. Just the way we like it.

Tues – Wed Dec. 5 – 6, 2017 | 7pm | Tickets $10

 Lineup for 12MM@Base:

Naphtali Beyleveld (Seattle) “Labor of Love” is a contemporary dance duet exploring the journey of a relationship—the intimacy, support, conflict, joy and interweaving that is involved in a long-term relationship.

Lynn Tofil (Seattle) “step one” is study in the life of a depressive, an anxious meditation in getting up, staying up, and powering through as inevitable, helpless melancholy tries to experience lightness and joy.

Danielle Doell (Seattle) "Make My Own Machine Work: Reconcile" is a confession on roller skates—a search for God, love, and redemption through pop music, the 10 Commandments and eight red wheels.

Susan Finque and Gretchen Hoffmeyer (Seattle) “Left” is a minimalist duet dealing with dis-ease, dis-ability and dis-association from the body left behind and the body left.

Kristina Dillard (Seattle) “Honey Lavender Pavlovas with Figs” (working title) explores the iconic imagery of ballerinas who dance atop cakes—melancholy young ladies who dream of performing in a royal icing and buttercream Versailles.

Daniel Costa (Seattle) “Interposition: Movement II” (Work in Progress) calls its audience on a journey of internal exploration. With original music by Alicia Pugh, sonic landscapes by Devin Bews and sensitive yet ferocious ensemble dancing.
