Once a year, they co-produce a lively, one-night-only showing of all-new short works: some created that day, some rehearsed a few days in advance, all being shared with their first (and maybe only) audience—you! Once we arrived at a theme and title for this year’s installment—#TRENDING—total freedom of interpretation was offered to the playwrights and choreographers. Participating: Gina Bachauer, Plan-B Theatre, PYGmalion Theatre Company, Repertory Dance Theatre’s Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company, and SB Dance. More at roseexposed.org/
