To continue Starr Foster Dance Project's mission to collaborate with and support other artists, not only those in Richmond but also nationwide, SFDP will be accepting photography submissions to inspire the creation of new dance works for their project Spitting Image. For this event, Foster will once again collaborate with composer Joey Luck (who wrote the score for Foster's Levitate) to create music for 7 new dances which will premiere at Theatre Lab's The Basement January 12th, 13th and 14th, 2018. The photography selected will be exhibited during the month of December 2017 to the end of the performance run.

UPDATE: DUE TO A LARGE NUMBER OF SUBMISSIONS, PHOTOGRAPHERS SELECTED WILL BE NOTIFIED SEPTEMBER 22ND (INSTEAD OF THE 20TH). WE APPRECIATE YOUR INTEREST AND PATIENCE.
