The performing company is comprised of adult dancers with and without disabilities. Their movement tendencies and personalities influence the stories told through movements. Through improvisational exercises, the choreographer develops choreography that tells stories while letting the dancers' voices resonate throughout the piece. Guided by our director of music Andrew Choe, original music is composed that matches the movements of the dancers in a continuous feedback process with the choreographer. The collaboration between these three parties creates unique pieces that blends strong voices to tell powerful stories that are universal to the human experience with an inclusive lens.
Outside of exclusively Abilities Dance produced shows, these pieces have been performed in different showcases and festivals in the Boston area and beyond. Such places include: the MFA, Peabody Essex Museum, Boston Contemporary Dance Festival, GRUNT Festival at Links Hall in Chicago, markeddanceproject’s 10th anniversary show at Gibney in NYC, The Series: Vol IV at the Ailey Citigroup Theatre, and more. We are proud of the venues that we have performed in and are eager to participate in more!
We have set repertoire pieces that are available for touring or special events, such as but not limited to, weddings, conferences, business events, and more! See the below videos of set pieces. We are also open to creating pieces based on the event's needs. Please email us at email@example.com for further inquiries.
