Contemporary Dance/Fort Worth Embraces Social Media, Spontaneity in Performances this Weekend

Contemporary Dance/Fort Worth wants you to help them choreograph their next piece. Really. If you have the desire to make somebody's body wiggle, this might be your chance.

With their latest offering, Some Assembly Required, Artistic Director Kerry Kreiman and her dancers are reaching out to the social media world and calling upon you, the public, to help inspire their performance this weekend at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Opening up the creative process to the public and allow them to dictate the course of the show? My hat's off to you, CD/FW. The concept sounds equal parts enticing and terrifying. Yet, these dancers are up to the challenge, and Kreiman has been slowing piecing the puzzle together for them.
