We are a Chicago based dance collective that creates camera, stage and street based performances for interactive and inclusive dance environments. We invite audiences to fully participate in our bodily experiments to boldly address real life issues. As we connect with our audiences, we strive to present dance as a tool for social, mental and spiritual development.
We exist to activate & illuminate space to:
Engage in Culture
The Ground Rhythm Method
Our artistic methodology and practices render a unique approach to generating movement. The Ground Rhythm Method introduces a movement hybrid that is influenced by martial arts, urban and contemporary dance vocabulary, while highlighting the use of rhythmic variation, somatic breath techniques, partnering. improvisation, and decision-making. This universal approach to movement establishes and develops one's ability to understand, engage and connect with the art of dance.
Our Vision & Values:
As a collective group of collaborators, we value making high quality work that benefits the public and challenges critical thinking. What we feed our minds directly affects our ability to make decisions. Although dance is our primary focus, our vision to illuminate the raw artist that lives inside every human being and nurture the power of our mind extends across multiple disciplines of art and includes collaboration with a variety of practitioners such as sound, visual art, and video. With your help, we can change the world, one mind at a time.
