Dominica Greene and Courtney Mazeika present A Shedding:
a donation-based, socially distanced, outdoor evening of live performances created by and for Black, LGBTQIA+, Artists of Color, and allies in the Salt Lake community.
This gathering offers up the space for those involved to mourn, address, discuss, and celebrate our experiences both individually and collectively, including offerings by local movement artists, a guided post-performance conversation, and a collection of resources for actionable steps towards supporting anti-racist principles and BIPOC rights.
‘A Shedding’ is a home for our Salt Lake arts community to gather in safety and delve into a genuine exchange of perspectives;a space for artists to be distinctly seen, heard, and supported in their authentic expressions.
First, please reserve your seat by filling out an RSVP form. Please note, there is very limited seating - 30 seats maximum.
The exact location will be shared upon RSVP. This event will take place outside, in Courtney Mazeika's 50'x90' backyard (very safe and spacious!)
This is a donation-based experience, on a sliding scale of $0-$20. Donations will be collected, not required, upon entrance, and will be subsequently circulated back into the Salt Lake community through Decarcerate Utah.
A Shedding will start at 7:00pm. Doors open at 6:30.
a note about COVID-19
The safety of our community is absolutely our top priority. A Shedding will follow all state and city guidelines, including but not limited to:
location is a very large OUTDOOR space - for maximum open air flow
limited audience capacity
temperatures taken before admittance
enforced social distancing
masks required at all times
no-touch procedures for ticketing, donations, and programs

Jump to our MORALITY REGISTRY!
This is not your average fundraiser. We are asking for your financial support with nothing offered in return except for a little bit of a morality boost...
and a certificate to prove it ;)
We are raising money prior to 'A Shedding' in order to cover the costs of production (a portable dance floor, marley, insurance, etc.) and to pay our collaborators a respectful, appropriate fee.
The artists involved in this project, and most dance artists in general, are already severely overworked and underpaid. We could offer you a free yoga class in exchange for a $30 donation…
but why feed the cycle that does not feed us?
We choose not to exhaust ourselves FOR FREE more than we already have - and you can donate to our cause because you love art and you respect artists.
How would you like to support the arts today?
