Musco Center Presents EmC x BD

Emerging Voices in Choreography

High-flying innovation from some of California’s top contemporary dance companies, including Whyteberg, TheFyberVision, Los Angeles Contemporary Dance Company, Backhausdance, and Blythe Barton Dance.

EmC x BD is the formula for Southern California’s newest dance festival—an explosion of works by choreographers on the brink of national recognition. The festival is curated by contemporary dance visionary Jennifer Backhaus, who has called on fellow Chapman Alumni Blythe Barton, Elke Calvert, Genevieve Carson, and Gracie Whyte to create a night that crackles with spirit, strength, and originality.


A choreographer for more than 16 years, Blythe Barton's work explores the range between technical modern dance and intimate gestured moments. Expect shifting dynamics and intricate manipulations of bodies and space, from one of San Diego's freshest choreographic talents.
