Sepiatonic Presents: Bridge The Gap




Sepiatonic Presents: Bridge The Gap


SEPIATONIC’S 2nd ANNUAL BRIDGE THE GAP!
Last year, we were so excited to put out our first Bridge The Gap weekend, and this time it is back, bigger and better! This is going to be one of the craziest parties Sepiatonic has thrown yet, with the most incredible stars from diverse Portland arts scenes in both dance and music. We also have more reason than ever this year, to be uniting as a powerful force of creative people, free-thinkers, and allies for the arts, to create a night of passionate, positive energy. Bridge the Gap is:

US: Electronic beats and bass with live horns and vocals, phenomenal dance acts from PDX’s finest, and guests from across the country. Vogue, waacking, belly dance, popping, Bollywood, samba, burlesque: an epic stage show!

YOU: Dancing to all-original house/electro-swing/bass tunes, and featured remixes with local artists and emcees in various styles from Bollywood to Vogue…while watching diverse dance acts on stage all night. 

Bridge The Gap is exactly what it sounds like:
Sepiatonic, with these parties, is bridging the gap between musicians and dance communities in Portland, bridging the gap between different genres of dancers in the NorthWest, bridging the gap between our talented performance art community and audiences looking for fresh, innovative live entertainment. Bridge the Gap is a way to stay connected, to collaborate, to innovate, to celebrate diversity, and to keep making art and growing community in these fearful times of oppression. The more that different artists, thinkers, feelers, and awake people of our communities unite, the stronger of a power we are against forces that strive to annihilate free-thinking, passionate creativity, and diverse and alternative lifestyles in our country. Let’s create a weekend of passionate, positive energy and resistance! 

BRIDGE THE GAP IS TWO PARTS:
1) APRIL 15: Live/electronic music and dance show + dance party
