About the company
Evolving Doors Dance cultivates, collaborates, builds community, educates, and performs while nurturing the art of dance and movement and its place in our world. The company works to present politically motivated, professional, relevant, accessible, contemporary modern dance. As EDD’s work paints pictures only bodies and spacial relationships can conjure, it uses dance as a medium to bring human and social awareness to its audience and its community–both locally and nationally. The company presents dance woven with political impressions, born from visions of equality, and filled with unmistakably universal human connections and themes that cross lines of sex, gender, ethnicity, and class. From the interaction of an intimate duet to echoes of the call for equal rights, performances seek to evoke, engage and evolve. Dances often strive to spark engagement in ways that create questions, uncover fears, investigate relationships, question behaviors and promote self-examination. Ultimately, Evolving Doors Dance connects with people through dance and uses dance and the body as the ultimate expression of artistic, political and social ideas and views.
