Open Dance Project is a contemporary dance theater company whose highly stylized performance experiences break down conventional barriers between artist and audience to make dance more accessible and meaningful for both. Dynamic, three-dimensional architectural environments and the engagement of interactive technologies collapse the distance between the subject and the stage, live performance and new media, dance and theater. Open Dance Project’s performance and education programs invite the audience to explore dance and dance making from their own self-determined vantage point – simultaneously demystifying dance and making dance matter.
