Venture Dance Project

When: July 15-16, 8:30 p.m. 2011

Kristin Damrow, an emerging young choreographer who moved to Oakland in 2010 from her hometown of Chicago, has found a creative nexus at the Subterranean Arthouse (2179 Bancroft Way, Berkeley), where her newly formed company, Venture Dance Project, performs Friday and Saturday, July 15-16. Perhaps not surprisingly, given how far from family Damrow now lives, she developed the 45-minute performance around the theme of home, sense memories, and perceptions of place. In the Arthouse's spirit of interdisciplinary experimentation and collaboration, the performance incorporates other local artists via a video by Kristin Rooney-Nguyen, layered instrumental music composed by Robert Shelton and Patrick Martens, and a gallery of collage by Anna Greenberg. 8:30 p.m., $8-$15. 800-838-3006 or
