We are an entirely volunteer run company that unwraps and dissects palpable female experiences and presents them in thoughtful, curious productions. We believe that dance is intrinsically – that is, by its very nature – accessible and because of this, we consider artist-audience dialogue an integral part of the creation of new and relevant danceworks. We seek to cultivate an engaged audience and to create meaningful connections between audience and performer.
