co.da artist reviewed in Seattle

by ashleyandersondances

Sugar Space’s co.da project is presenting starter.kit this August 2-4. The evening will feature work by company members Molly Heller, Nancy Simpson Carter, and Jane Jackson. They’re also bringing out Shannon Mockli, a Utah native currently working in Oregon as a professor. Shannon produced a lot of choreography you might remember while she was in graduate school at the U from 2007-09. She also recently participated in Seattle’s AWARD show- a format we’ve discussed a lot on this blog, both in its original NYC form and in its local incarnation as the Sugar Show. Here’s one reviewer’s thoughts on the evening…

I personally miss seeing Mockli’s work and am excited to see it again. Hopefully more opportunities for accomplished ex-Utah artists like her to come back to town to show work will emerge in the next few years. Perhaps this could serve as a model:
