Collaboration Between GUSTO Dance, IMMIX Dance Project, and Lyme Arts Association born from ArtsNet9


On June 3 GUSTO Dance, IMMIX Dance Project, and Lyme Art Association are coming together to create a mixed media, performance based exhibition called “Dancing Gallery: Contemporary x 2". This event is a collaboration of like-minded organizations converging visual and performing arts resulting in an experience like no other.

Dancing Gallery: Contemporary x 2 is very different from the many events held by dancing companies and it is breathing new life into a genre of performance art that is not seen often in the Shoreline area. The event, held on June 3 at the Lyme Art Association, located in Old Lyme, CT, will feature improvised dances inspired by specific works of art on display at the gallery as well as choreographed pieces. At one point in the performance, dancers will move through the gallery among visitors, inviting them to direct their movement, and finding inspiration from the visual art around them.

In regards to the collaboration, Chloe Carlson, the Artistic Director of Gusto Dance said, “How cool that LAA (Lyme Art Association), with its venerable history, has been so welcoming and supportive of new ways to enrich people’s experience of art. It has been a pleasure to work with Gary Parrington and the whole LAA Team on this event. We hope this is just the beginning of cross-pollinating inspiration.”

Shoreline Arts Alliance is honored to have played a role in this converging of ideas which was born at Shoreline Arts Alliance’s ArtsNet90, a member exclusive event held monthly. It was at ArtsNet90 that the organizations discovered that they all shared the same goal: mixing different mediums of art to create an entirely new experience.

“Shoreline Arts Alliance’s ArtsNet90 provided the forum for networking that blossomed into DANCING GALLERY, and the Alliance has continued to help grow the project with promotion and other support,” Chloe Carlson says in regards to the new collaboration.

Here at Shoreline Arts Alliance, we are thrilled to give organizations across the state the opportunity to connect and grow their own artistic missions.

Dancing Gallery: Contemporary x 2 will have two shows one at 1:30 PM and another at 2:30 PM both will be held in the Goodman Gallery located at Lyme Art Association 90 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, CT 06371.
