WHY: Stella Kutz and Will Lemke have been friends since the late 90’s during their days at Franklin High. Stella is an accomplished dancer & choreographer, and built Yaw Theater as a studio and performance space focused on developing community and collaboration among artists. Will has been making films since his childhood, and opened Propadata Films in 2005 with a focus on exploring eye-opening stories. The two are excited to provide an event for local filmmakers and dancers to screen their works, and for Seattle theatergoers to support homegrown talent!

Pitch and Roll Productions is dedicated to bringing more opportunities for dancers and artists to collaborate and perform to build a more inclusive creative community in the Seattle area.
