Alternative Factory

An exciting new arts and dance party is coming to The Alt Theatre this coming Saturday. The event is essentially a mashup of installations and performances by the creative inhabitants of Great Arrow Factory’s 3rd floor.

The evening starts off with an arts reception/meet and greet (cash bar, appetizers) with a handful of Buffalo’s hottest artists – Bruce Adams, Dave Butler, Candace Masters and Richard Huntington. It’s a chance to check out their studios and discover a little bit about what makes them tick. The 6:00pm to 9:00pm Arts Reception is included with all tickets.

This event features FLEXIBLE TICKETING. Purchase tickets online or at the door to whatever sparks your fancy, or take advantage of our PACKAGE DEAL: all three for $20.

From there, visitors are invited to break out their sketch books, to capture costumed dancers as they appear motionless on the Alt Theatre stage, in silent repose. Capture the expertly balanced emotion, as each dancer perches frozen in time. Figure drawing takes place from 6:00pm to 7:20pm, and is $7 to participate.

What would an evening at The Alt Theatre be like without a dance performance? Come see what a number of Buffalo’s most sensational choreographers have put together, from 7:30pm to 8:15pm on the same stage – $10.

  • An industrial ballet piece by Ballet Ex Machina
  • A contemporary trio choreographed by Phil Wackerfuss
  • High energy jazz works by ConvergeDance
  • A corde lisse solo by Erica Cope
  • A duet en pointe with aerial silk choreographed by Amy Taravella

Finally, a dance party featuring the sounds of DJ Natron will bring everyone together on the stage of The Alt, for a culminating celebration between the hours of 8:30pm and 10:30pm ($7).

This is a party for the artists, for the dancers, for the appreciators, all for the sake of having a good time.
