MAY 2019 BDC/ Bloedel reserve artist in residence: MOLISSA FENLEY (NYC)


SAT JUNE 15 at 8PM 

Molissa Fenley first came to BDC in September 2017 when she helped set Energizer (1980) on the Advanced Repertory dancers. She will return in May 2019 for a co-residency at the Bloedel Reserve and Bainbridge Dance Center. During her residency she will be creating the fifth section of her work The Cosmati Variations, a work set to the third and final Construction by John Cage inspired by the Cosmati mosaics in Rome. This new work will be performed at an In-Studio Showing on Tuesday May 28th at 5pm and at the Seattle International Dance Festival on Saturday June 15th at 8pm. 

BDC Director Christiana Axelsen is excited to be performing in this new work!



We are delighted to welcome Randall Anthony Smith to Bainbridge Dance Center back to BDC in June. As the répétiteur and assistant to the late choreographer Donald McKayle, Randall was here for a week in January to set McKayle’s Rainbow Etude on our most advanced dancers. His master classes and rehearsals were inspiring immersions in the movement language and artistic ideas of one of the most important, impactful and renown black American choreographers. Randall will return in June to coach the students before their end of the year performance.
