Our process is based on experimentation: as individuals, a creative collective, and with community members. Our “labs” have company members lead 3-hr workshops in their areas of interest culminating in a dance, product, prototype or artwork. We center narratives responsive to local community needs when developing our pieces. Open rehearsals provide incremental performance opportunities and we solicit community feedback to stay on message. Outside feedback includes consulting our advisors– key indigenous organizers and movement artists. Together we ensure that our public productions center the cultural transmission of earth-affirming values by people historically and currently fighting colonial displacement. This cyclical process of learning, development, feedback, and production has been the core artistic process since the beginning of In Divine Company.
