"If you are not at the table, you are probably on the menu."

This co-presentation with ODC Theater is part two and three of Deborah Slater Dance Theater’s inCIVILITY series— the acclaimed Outrage Machine (2018), a combination of motion capture, live interactive visual effects, and the expressive power of dance; and the world premiere of the third and final section, A Seat at the Table, in celebration of DSDT’s 30th Anniversary season. Inspired by an Adam Gopnick article, “…Who Deserves a Seat at the Table”, and Jonathan Swift's “A Modest Proposal”, A Seat at the Table combines athletic interactions inspired by humanity, power, and place with community input about marginalization, powerlessness, and even being shunned.

A multi-media award-winning dance company, Deborah Slater Dance Theater does visually gorgeous, acrobatic, talking dance. Celebrating its 30th Anniversary in 2019, DSDT is dedicated to the creation of all-original performances exploring timely social issues and creating meaningful paths through life’s experience, using dance, education, and outreach to the community.

This project is partially funded by The Stanley S. Langendorf Foundation, Sam Mazza Foundation, The Kenneth Rainin Foundation, Grants for the Arts, California Arts Council, Zellerbach Family Foundation, The National Endowment for the Arts, and individual donors.
