Mark Haim in residency at 10d

Renowned Seattle-based choreographer Mark Haim is dancing daily in 10 degrees to prepare for a collaborative, improvisational performance as part of the Seattle Festival of Dance Improvisation.

I am performing with improv greats Michael Schumacher, Kirstie Simpson, Darrell Jones and Tom Schumacher one evening during the Seattle Festival of Dance and Improvisation and needed some consistent alone time in a studio to feel myself moving again. Being and dancing in the intimacy and the safety of 10 degrees daily for two weeks leading up to the show is exactly what I needed.
