SOLA is an evening of solo dances choreographed for and by women. Curated by University of South Florida assistant professor Andee Scott and sponsored by the USF School of Theatre and Dance, the performance showcases the work of choreographers from around the country, including Amy Chavasse (MI), Tzveta Kassabova (VT), Pam Pietro (NY), Mary Williford-Shade (TX), and USF’s own Bliss Kohlmyer and Andee Scott.

SOLA is the first performance produced by Dance Linkages, a new project created by USF Faculty member Andee Scott to build a contemporary network of artists connecting within and across disciplines to develop and perform new work.

The performance will premiere in Tampa, FL in August, then tour to New York, Michigan, Texas, and Vermont throughout 2014-15.

“This performance project is an opportunity to bring together high caliber professional artists to not only produce an evening of stunning dance, but also to create a new model for touring dance that creatively responds to current issues of funding scarcity within the arts.” Andee Scott
