Curbside Culture is a new program that brings the performing arts out into the community by facilitating small-scale live performances, in appropriately social-distanced circumstances, outside of private residences, places of business, and other gathering spots. Download the program flyer.

A program of the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region, Curbside Culture offers community members an enjoyable arts experience, and a meaningful way to support local performing artists during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a Curbside Culture host site, you will be responsible for (1) providing electricity by running an extension cord to the street or performance location, and (2) gathering a small audience to enjoy the performance (please follow current social distancing guidelines). Pricing and performance options are listed below, and all financial transactions should be conducted directly with the performer, in a mutually convenient manner.

“Lecture, Demonstration, Performance” $500 (will be donated to Colorado Springs Dance Theatre)

  • “Lecture, Demonstration, Performance” is a 55 min performance art piece created in real-time through Socratic discussion. Part dialogue, part monologue, part choreography, part improvisation, this work is a broad reflection on dance as an art form through the ages. Its purpose is to challenge assumptions about expression, perception, and the human body. The funds from the purchasing of this piece go directly to support Colorado Springs Dance Theatre’s efforts to expand its educational programming.

“Living Safely between Emergencies” Please contact Jordan for pricing

  • “Living Safely between Emergencies” is an 18 min solo performance for a max of 10 audience members. In a private atmosphere, this contemporary immersive work is a response to the shifts in human intimacy, connectedness, and shared responsibility in the wake of the new global landscape.
