The revival of The 1 Mile Radius Project will happen throughout Mount Rainier, MD on Friday, April 20th at 7 pm.

About The 1 Mile Radius Project
An expansion of Orange Grove Dance’s 2016-2017 NextLOOK residency, part two of The 1 Mile Radius Project allows for deeper exploration of the unique spaces within a one-mile radius of Joe’s Movement Emporium in Mount Rainier, MD. “Our human imprint and the memory of our movement linger in spaces well after we have migrated through them,” states Orange Grove Dance co-founders Colette Krogol and Matt Reeves. The 1 Mile Radius Project will explore these imprints and through dance, film and projections, it will investigate the personal and uniquely traversed spaces of the community, zooming into and magnifying the intimate nooks and crevices of seemingly familiar areas.
About Orange Grove Dance
Orange Grove Dance, founded in 2007 by Colette Krogol and Matt Reeves, is built on the ideals of integrating dance, design, film, and movement with all communities.
Colette Krogol and Matt Reeves are dancers, choreographers, filmmakers, and teaching artists. They have been making work collaboratively for over ten years as the Artistic Directors of Orange Grove Dance. In 2017 they were selected as the ‘Audience Choice Award’ winner of the 34th Annual Choreographers Showcase Award for their work Holding, Here, which was described by Dance Metro DC as a “magically spun… visual tale of suspension, tension, and community within a multilayered moving painting.” Krogol and Reeves both hold MFAs in Dance from the University of Maryland and BFAs from the University of Florida.
