Bill Evans Announces Three Different Contemporary Dance Concerts July 21, 22 and 28, 2023! Three different contemporary dance concerts featuring nationally-prominent choreographers will be performed in the JFK Hall at Fort Worden as part of the ninth annual Bill Evans Somatic Dance Conference, to be held in Port Townsend for the first time this summer. The scholar/artists performing in these shows will be sharing their research in day-time sessions and sharing their art in the evenings. ? Widely-acclaimed performance artist, writer and choreographer Claire Porter will be the featured performer on Saturday July 22. She performed at the Key City Public Theatre in January, 2020 and left audiences wanting more of her "heart-stabbing hilarity." Evans and Don Halquist will be performing a new Claire Porter piece in that same concert, the fifth of her works they have commissioned. ? Each concert was curated by Bill Evans and each will be entirely different. The Friday evening shows (July 21st and 28th) will be offered on a pay what you can at the door basis (suggested: $5, $10, $15 or $20). Doors will open at 6:30. Tickets for the special Saturday show (July 22nd) will be available in advance online or at the door. Price is $25 (plus service fee if purchasing online). www.brownpapertickets.com/event/6038749?
