WET CLUTCH: A Drive-In Dance Experience
Choreographed by Ani Taj
This one-of-a-kind drive-in dance experience reinterprets and remixes movie heroines from the last four decades of American film. Featuring richly-layered original video design, an explosive and electric soundtrack, and high-endurance live performance by TDC’s radically diverse group of dancers, WET CLUTCH invites the audience on a journey through the cultural mythology of Hollywood cinema and the femme-fatales of the golden age of cinema.
The performance will merge into a physical exchange and culminate with a live set by their long-time collaborator DJ Average Jo – and by the end of a Cartel show, everyone is dancing.
This program has been made possible thanks to the generosity of Anke Beck-Friedrich and Juergen Friedrich.

It’s friends like you that have made the first five years of SAC so successful. Now, we are taking the opportunity to invite you to become our Friend – formally – as we launch Southampton Arts Center Friends Circle.
TAKEOVER! GALLERIES ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED - CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES. TAKEOVER 2020! artists include Jodi Bentivegna, Michael Butler, Isadora Capraro, Franco Cuttica, Esly Escobar, Melinda Hackett, Erica-Lynn Huberty, Dinah Maxwell Smith, Miles Partington, and Kerry Sharkey-Miller Back by popular demand with 10 new artists-in-residence! For ten weeks in the winter of 2020 Southampton Arts Center will once again hand over its galleries to ten East End artists, each with an assigned space to set up a “pop-up” studio. Completed works will be installed and the artists will have scheduled weekly studio time in the galleries from Thursday to Sunday, 12-6 PM to create new works in a wide variety of mediums. A schedule will be posted online each week so the public can plan visits accordingly. This gives guests the opportunity to visit repeatedly to view the progress of new works. It is both encouraged and anticipated that the TAKEOVER! artists will also collaborate organically during the course of their residencies. TAKEOVER 2020! is sponsored by Ingrid Arneberg with additional support from the Long Island Community Foundation. Public funding provided by Suffolk County.
