We see a revolution-in-waiting for the creation of new dance work, performance and movement-based arts in Boston. Missing only is a physical space to support the rich landscape of artists and movers, a place in which to study, create, take risks and share new dance with the local, national and global communities.
Here’s a recent interview of New Movement Collaborative by the local arts series Backlight Boston
With its green spaces and historic waterfront, the buzz from the number of academic institutions and start-ups innovating in arts, science and technology, and its long history as a center of independence, revolution and new-thinking, we see every piece of the puzzle in place to make Boston a city that supports new and innovative contemporary dance.
We believe in the power of connections. It is through the cultivation of new relationships between preexisting organizations and allegiance to the ones that have been supporting dance for so long, that we will succeed.
Over the coming year NMC will be building the energy, the momentum and the architecture through new programming, events and a dedicated space to make Boston a new and important stomping ground and training center for contemporary dance, improvisation and performance art. A space that is built on collaboration with artists at the local, national and international level.
With an interdisciplinary drive and a love of the new, we will move our community forward.
Yours in movement,
