Project Description

SuarezDanceTheater is a Los Angeles-based ensemble that stimulates social change through dance-making and creative practices. By asking what is dance, where we dance, and why we dance, the company ignites our conversations and illuminates collective unspoken stories to build community. The Company is dedicated to publicly engage communities with their work creating participatory experiences all over Los Angeles. They specialize in working with constituencies that normally would not experience dance-theater. They passionately foster new communities through the act of moving and creating together where individuals can connect with their bodies, each other and find their own expressivity. The work happens in theaters, houses, classrooms, parks, churches, galleries, and beaches. SuarezDanceTheater collaborators include multi-generational performers, designers and musicians along with parents, children, veterans, health care workers, high school students and teen mothers.
