Project Description

On Our Way is a multimedia dance incubator that culminates as a dance-event on the Razorback Greenway Trail in Northwest Arkansas. On Our Way celebrates local queer artists and initiates dialogue around ecological attunement and regional accessibility of performance art. The project engages practicing artists and a community cast selected through invitation and open-call. On Our Way is a performance that is structured as a game, intentionally distributing agency amongst its players, opening space for dialogue and disrupting conventional ideas around dance, especially boundaries between audience and performers. On Our Way is an opportunity to explore how we express ourselves in relationship with our place and our community.
