This mission manifests through the following ways:
Artistic exploration and performance of multi-media dance theater
Ongoing improvisational movement workshops for the public
Exchange with other local, national and international artists
Biannual platforms to create and present new work for established and emerging professional artists (Spiel Uhr) and for community members (Performance Project)
The Group Motion Workshop is a resource for creative and authentic expression through dance, music and movement. It offers a space for expression and communication which is spontaneous, deep and direct, allowing for new channels for creative potential to open. The Group Motion Workshop celebrates the language of movement as a language that anyone can speak and understand.It creates a ritual space for building and celebrating community.
