Performance Group
"The Perennials"

Our goals include developing the artistic voices of participating dancers and fostering community inside and outside of the collective. The adults in this performance group are key collaborators in the creation of the work, offering them agency over their stories and how they are shared in text and movement. This project invites dancers and their stories to take center stage, shining the spotlight on their value and role in our community.

The Body Remembrance

This 2022 original dance piece explores aging and the effect that aging has on our bodies. In our year long rehearsal process we researched the following questions: What wisdom do our bodies hold? What have our bodies gifted us as we have aged? What stories do our skin, bones, and muscles hold? Using honesty, humor, and hopefulness we tell the stories of our changing bodies.
