On Sunday, April 15th, the week before PTDT premieres “Living Under the Influence“, we invited our Friends Circle donors to an open rehearsal. Several donors watched an hour of rehearsal, seeing behind the scenes of our process. They saw dancers rehearse pieces they knew well, and also pieces they’ve recently learned. They heard how dancers work with corrections, saw some of Pamela’s process of choreographing, and watched the dancers play an improvisation game where movements are made up on the spot but look like choreography because of a set of rules. Following the rehearsal, donors and dancers mingled over refreshments. Linda Clevenger, former board member and current director of the Friends program, brought the event together.
