Re:Emerge - Video Volume 3
Gaucho Reunion: Performances by current students and alumni

It is exciting to finally be seeing some bright lights ahead after all these difficult months. We are excited to be welcoming back both performers and audiences and we thought it was a great time to celebrate. 

The Re:Emerge Festival performed June 17-20 with 4 unique line-ups including live and video performances by dancers from Santa Barbara and beyond in a wide variety of dance styles and genres. For those who were not able to join us for the Festival we have created a video version. Each day of the Festival will be released as a unique video, this is volume 3 recorded June 19 at Center Stage Theater.

Director’s Note
It goes without saying that this has been an incredibly challenging year. While many industries have been effected by the pandemic in significant ways, the performing arts—and dance in particular—have endured devastating economic and structural ramifications. COVID’s impact on the arts has been widely un-addressed at the governmental level and it is due to the unshakeable support of arts advocates, donors, and community organizers that we are here today.

This year—and the end of last school year—has had a disproportionate sense of loss for our seniors. The students’ visions for the culmination of four years of study took a sharp turn. Yet, with grace and adaptability they met the challenges and losses with energy and passion and turned every opportunity into a meaningful experience. It is with great pride that we witness the transcendence of these shortfalls—both locally, and more broadly across the field of dance.

When submissions for the festival call came in, and the program curation started taking shape, it was the robust response from new and recent UCSB Alumni that inspired the program tonight. The choreographers, directors, filmmakers, and dancers presenting their work are representatives of various cohorts from the last few years. Their assemblage expresses the power of lineage and the shared history that connects graduates of any institution. The return of these artist— in various stages in their personal and professional lives—is an exciting and inspiring example of what is possible when you have the courage to forge your own path.

Thank you so much for spending the evening with us, and for your
ongoing support of the performing arts. We hope to see you again soon!

—Brandon Whited, Curator/Artistic Director
