Our mission is to create, perform, and explore movement as a means of uniting body and spirit in order to foster dialogue and understanding in our time. Through honoring traditional and contemporary embodied practices with recent discoveries in the human sciences, the company strives to awaken the physical and shared humanity of the performers and audience alike.
