ABOUT TEN TINY DANCES
Choreographer and dancer Mike Barber came up with an interesting concept in 2002. Ten Tiny Dances presents ten dance performances on a 4-by-4-foot stage, challenging the choreographers and dancers to use the limited space to fuel their creativity. Barber has presented Ten Tiny Dances in a wide range of settings, from warehouse spaces to trendy restaurants, and even on multiple stages, encouraging the audience to experience dance that has been created for a specific location.
