Lafayette choreographer Paige Krause and her dance collective (C)ollaborate 78 have been selected to perform in June at the St-Ambroise Montreal FRINGE Festival. A Katrina transplant to Lafayette via New Orleans, Krause is a former artist-in-residence at the Acadiana Center for the Arts who debuted her original choreography, "I've Stopped Having That Dream I've Been Having," last year at the AcA.
Co-founded by Krause and visual artist/set designer Marla Kristicevich, (C)78 describes itself as "interested in the dialogue between other contributors and between the community which surrounds them, examining the relationship and integration between contemporary dance, sculptural design and original sound."
The collective plans to hold fundraisers locally to generate the $8,000 travel-lodging-food-supplies budget. Stay tuned for details on these fundraisers. In the meantime, the group is about $1,000 shy of achieving its $4,000 goal on the website Kickstarter.com. Click here to make a contribution.
(C)78 members include, from left, front, dancers Esther Winn Burley, Chad
Trahan, Kara St. Clair and Jamie Faulk; Philippe Landry, back, is the composer.
