If the suburban Friday-night routine is becoming old hat (happy hour at Applebee’s, anyone?), here’s something just avant garde enough to feel novel.

Subsequently Tethered, an evening-length dance concert produced by contemporary dance artists Carley Conder, of Tempe’s CONDER/dance, and Jenny Showalter, of Treeline Dance Works, will take place twice over the weekend, combining a feast of raw physicality, video imagery and original musical composition inside a unique downtown Phoenix landmark.

The Wakelin Warehouse, a former grocery storage facility built in 1913, will become a contemporary performance venue for the event. Viewers will be transported to spaces throughout the building, now known at the Terpsicore Space, as the program evolves. The building is not handicap accessible.

The show includes a video installation by award-winning artist Perry Allen and a site-specific, multimedia work by Phoenix’s urbanSTEW. A wine reception will follow each show.

Conder and Showalter decided to co-produce Subsequently Tethered when movement similarities became evident through a rehearsal process.

“I am interested in challenging the physicality of dance, and I appreciate this same aesthetic in Conder’s work,” says Showalter.

CONDER/dance will present a work, performed in 1960s bathing suits, that explores the subterranean depths of form and flow. Treeline will premiere a work inspired by militant though interdependent attitudes toward both strangers and those we have known our entire lives.
