A Wild Feminist Playlist

About the Project

MIXTAPE is an annual dance festival featuring works that celebrate, support, and uplift inclusivity and gender equality. Since 2016, artists representing communities across the US have come together to express their unique truths, beliefs, and identities through dance performance and community engagement. 

    Though we are physically distant right now, MIXTAPE 2020/21 will bring us together around themes of Inclusivity, Gender-Equality, and Femininity through virtual gatherings, Zoom classes, artist MIXers, film, and, as we responsibly reawaken, live performance. 

    Support for artists is needed now more than ever, and you, our audience, deserves to be inspired, uplifted, and engaged in the truths that unite us. A donation at any level will support our MIXTAPE artists and help us rebuild, refresh, and restructure. 

      Funds will go directly towards:
      • Virtual MIXTAPE workshop series: Offered for an exclusive time during MIXTAPE 2020’s original festival dates in May 2020, classes will be offered to the community taught by MIXTAPE featured artists via Zoom. Donations will ensure that our instructors will receive compensation for their time, effort and instruction, as workshop classes will be offered free to our community. 
      • Zoetic Dance artists: Our artists work hard to bring our audiences the very best in dance and movement, and during this time, they are unable to get in the studio to do what they do best. Donations will ensure that our artists are able to continue their pursuit of professional dance during this time of social distance, when studios and venues are closed. 
      • Administration: Countless hours have gone into the planning and organizing of MIXTAPE 2020, which was set to occur on May 8 & 9. Postponed due to COVID-19, Zoetic’s team has been hard at work at reorganizing our program to be presented later this year. This disruption have effected not just Zoetic’s team, but also our network of volunteers, contributors, collaborators and partners. Donations will help support our admin team as they continue to rebuild MIXTAPE 2020 into its potential in the fall of 2020. 

        Zoetic is passionate about continuing our mission to present innovative dance works and programming to our community and we hope that you will be inspired to make a donation which will help cover artist compensation, production fees, teaching costs, venue rentals fees, administrative costs and more!  

          About Zoetic:
            Since 2001, it has been Zoetic’s mission to promote female empowerment and feminism through dance. This goal continues to drive the company in our efforts to create inclusive performance platforms for a diverse group of dance artists. Through our initiative to present our MIXTAPE dance festival, Zoetic is passionate to explore opportunities for the expression of varying feminine perspectives encompassing women and members of the LGBTQ+ communities. It is our belief that by providing platforms for artists to create and share work through our mission of celebrating the feminine spirit, we are helping to enrich our community’s cultural landscape and raise awareness of the issues facing women and others marginalized based on gender-identity. MIXTAPE is a movement towards promoting positive change and uplifting the powerful voices of inclusivity, equality and strength.
