MascallDance has now produced and incited movement creation for 33 years. Our mandate is informed by Mascall's wide-ranging studies and interests in physical motivation, movement and mind/body connections.
The company is concerned with dance as an art form and with its significance to our culture. Many activities are initiated to stimulate dialogue about dance and movement - between professional artists of many disciplines, between artists and non-artists.
Any movement idea possible is used to explore and realize an idea. Our work often questions assumptions, traditions, and styles. At every level of the company, we intentionally take participants out of their habits and we place high demands on artists and art workers.
Our mission is to provide a forum for the research creation performance education documentation and dissemination of contemporary dance and related disciplines.
While Mascall Dance primarily develops and promotes the work of choreographer Jennifer Mascall, the company also places a high priority on mentoring new and emerging choreographic voices.
Our mandate is to promote public exposure to and appreciation of dance and related arts ~ to research human movement and physical motivation and apply this knowledge to the production, dissemination and documentation of dance ~ to educate dancers and the general public in the traditions, history, developments and discoveries of modern dance
