Conceived and directed by Kelly Silliman,
the tinydance project is a performance ensemble based in the Northampton, MA area that began with the question of what dance and performance art would look like without the high-tech resources currently available to us.
Tinydance performances are presented in natural light to acoustic accompaniment on a 4’ by 8’ stage towed by bicycle to outdoor venues. Modeled after the values of Tiny Houses, which are highly designed for efficiency and beauty, the tinydance project presents multidisciplinary, movement-based performances with intricately woven and curated sound scores sung by the performers. Presenting work in this way is part of the company members’ practice and exploration of sustainability in art and life. Tinydance collaborators are always paid for their creative work, and maintain a commitment to presenting performances free to the public.
