Our mission is to make dance in an environment that fosters the complete creative investment of each of our collaborators, and to present performances in ways that broaden the accessibility of innovative modern dance to new audiences.
for change dance collective (fcdc) grew out of a desire to make dance through a choreographic process that reflects the ideals of socially conscious art. Since 2010, fcdc has been creating highly experiential dance theater excavated from raw experience, employing a uniquely democratic approach to art-making that embraces collaboration, shared ownership, and intimacy of all kinds.
A sense of familial interconnectedness pervades our work, as many individual voices equally contribute to performances that cast light on the aspects of humanity that connect us all. United under the core beliefs that great art is transformational art, and that great art should be accessible to all, we hope to create dance that fosters change in audiences and performers alike.
WHAT AUDIENCES ARE SAYING
On The Faults We Sought to Mend: Burnished at the Broken Places:
“for change dance collective took 35 deliciously crafted minutes to move the mixed up “stuff” of life from upstage to downstage and every one was compelling with tender lifts, aggressive confrontations and risky dives.”
