REAson d'etre dance productions are committed providing artistic expression through movement, inclusive of age, ability, level background, or race. We stage and program works based on Contact-Dance Improvisation so we can utilize the inclusiveness that can be a part of this dance form. Our vision is for both professional dancers and everyday people to be inspired and invigorated by Contact Dance Improvisation. This mandate involves initiatives that work to dismantle racism and other isms as their existence makes achieving our mandate not possible. We are committed to examining the art form of contact improvisation and acknowledging its history of inequity. We strive to educate ourselves and to take action to rectify these issues. The events of the last week remind us that we have a responsibility to stand up and speak out, for change. Along with arts organizations around the world, we are taking time to reflect and be in solidarity with the black community.
