the Detroit REVIVAL Project will bring together local artists to collaborate in a shared performance space in order to build a stronger arts community in Detroit.  



The Detroit Revival Project is movement in collaboration with the music from 'Members of ConTempus'.  Members of ConTempus will select  an original piece of music that they will be performing at the Detroit Dance City Festival along with your creation. 

In collaboration with Summer Dance Lab (August 2 - 9, 2018), an 8 day program of workshops, creations, and a performance where dancers have the opportunity to work closely with guest artists. All dancers enrolled in the Summer Dance Lab will take class every morning with International artist Kang Seok Lee from South Korea. After class dancers will have the opportunity to be a part of the creation project through one of the two pieces that will be created during the 8 days.
