Performances

As dancers we are intrigued by the physical demands of different environments, both natural and human made. Working with improvisation and set choreography, the nature of the space and the space of nature challenges our ever-developing consciousness of change, preservation and adaptability.

 

“Dance – a physical voice for environmental activism, taking it out of the margins and placing it in the center of the conversation.”

NWD Projects dancers also brought their movement invention to a celebration of Earth Day at the Jupiter Lighthouse. Working with a group of improvisers and community members, Dale organized a performance for Global Water Dances in the mudflats of the Weskeag River in Maine. Other collaborations include an improvised structure inspired by the work of visual artist Karen Rifas at the Emerson Dorsch Gallery in Little Haiti. Dale Andree created a work for a dancer, actor and musician called “And We Think Nothing of It” which has been presented in Ft. Lauderdale at Art Space, Love the Everglades Conference at the Miccosukee Resort and at Florida International University for the Hispanic Women Writer’s Conference.
