Never Ending Work
Seattle International Dance Festival:
James Ray Residency Recipient
Never Ending Work dance project (N.E.W.)
A group committed to creating works that reflect the raw truth of challenges faced in our communities, while simultaneously uplifting these challenges to a place of joy and freedom. Our work is grounded in the accumulation of our individual strengths and ability to meld into one cohesive idea. It is our desire to celebrate and highlight the diversity within our group and our community. We are investing our energy into one another and seeking knowledge and growth. It is our hope that this investment is seen through our movement and used to empower others.
There is no end, until what is not; exists.
