Guided by a combination of structured compositional exercises and very open improvisational forms, participants create choreography and text based on their own stories, histories, and physical abilities. We incorporate these creations and the unique issues of each community into the larger context of the performances. Producing performance pieces that are developed collaboratively by experienced professional artists and diverse community members furthers our goal of blending artistic excellence with accessibility.
