Last December, Team Diva sponsored the NEXT Fest NW kickoff party for Velocity Dance Center. This really was one of the most fun events we have hosted and was full to the brim with incredible pieces by up-and-coming performance artists.
Although all of the performances were top notch, one of our favorites of the evening was most certainly the Warrior Princesses, led by Maya Soto. For those of you that were there, you will remember these girls took out all the stops, dancing beautifully in frilly white gowns and dripping in fake blood. One of the girls even performed with a broken foot – talk about warrior princess!
Well lucky for us, this performance at NEXT Fest was only a sneak peek at the full piece, Gathering Bones. The full piece will be debuting at Velocity for one weekend only in May, so the time has come to start snatching up tickets while they are still available. The performances aim to trace through stories of “powerful and wild women” that span history. We really think that this is going to be one of the best performances of the year from what we saw in the preview at NEXT Fest. If you want to be a part of the wild regality that are the warrior princesses, make sure you get your tickets at Brown Paper Tickets for the show on May 18-19. You’ll be bound to run into some of the Diva Team!
We are also pleased to announce that Maya Soto and her girls will be performing some rendition of the princesses at the Diva Wedding in September. Keep on the lookout here for more details as we prepare for the big day!
