Project Description

Founded in 1996, Flyaway Productions is an apparatus based dance company that explores the range and power of female physicality. Our mission supports the following goals: the integration of experimental forms with social and political content; the support of women artists, where women’s voices remain an underserved element of public culture; and the use of spectacle/flight/suspended apparatus to expand choreographic language.

Flyaway Productions uses the artistry of spinning, flying, and exquisite suspension to engage a political issue. We build coalitions with arts and non arts community partners to present large-scale, site-specific performances on the walls of public buildings. Each year our dance performances and acclaimed educational programs for teenage girls from disinvested communities serve approximately 5,000 people. Our work democratizes public space.
