Perhaps you've heard of a film competition called The 168 Project? The idea is that filmmakers are given a Bible verse and one week—168-hours— to create a short film inspired by the verse. This isn't about that. Well, not exactly.

The new Racine + Southern Dance Exchange has taken the same basic idea and tweaked it, replacing film with dance and exchanging the inspirational verse with an inspirational "artistic prompt." 

See these envelopes? Last week they contained the prompts.

They were distributed at a little get together.

And for the past week artists ...


and choreographers have been scrambling to make a show.


This is an of the moment notion so, of course, there is a documentary element, and the process has been shared on social media
