ODC Dance Jam and Seeds Present: UNMUTED
A Virtual Red Carpet Premiere
Saturday, April 24, 2021 5:30 PM PT
Experience ODC’s two teen companies, the ODC Dance Jam (contemporary), and Seeds (hip hop), in an hour-long virtual evening of films featuring each company. Hosted by Artistic Directors Kimi Okada, Dexandro Montalvo, and Amber Julian, join us and see the true creativity and spirit which emerged from a year of sheltering.
The Seeds film tracks the formation and development over the year of this company of young dancers under the direction of Amber Julian; culminating in a hip hop piece inspired by the elements filmed at Lands End in San Francisco.
The ODC Dance Jam, directed by Kimi Okada and Dexandro Montalvo, will offer a series of short films choreographed for the camera. The pieces include a newly commissioned work by Montalvo, a piece co-choreographed by the company filmed at Ocean Beach, 3 short films by Jam company members, and a short documentary piece about the Jam experience.
The film premiere culminates in a Zoom after party to celebrate the accomplishments of these talented teens!
