2020 20th ANNIVERSARY SEASON: ALL DIGITAL. FEATURING THE PREMIERE OF ORCHID PEOPLE

In 20 years, every performance has included live music and the musicians as integral parts of the visual stage imagery. 

 

We believe that the artist's role in society is to communicate, to challenge, to open a dialogue that can both unite us and inspire meaningful change. 

 

We function like a jazz band, and along with sections of choreographed movements and written music, we use improvisation that comes out of the form, concept, and emotional life of the work.
