join AXIS’ Visionary Circle
Dear Friends, Advocates, Artistic Boundary Pushers-
I would like to invite you to join the Visionary Circle to support my artistic vision for the company over the next three years.
As a repertoire dance company commissioning and making new cutting-edge dance is at the heart of what we do at AXIS. As part of this movement, I envision the creation of three new works over the next three years. These projects will highlight the beauty, depth, and community of AXIS. First, we will partner with international dance artist Arthur Pita to create a dance theatre work entitled Alice in Oakland. This will be AXIS largest commission to date. I would also like to create our first full-length show for young audiences based on the classic Aesop’s fables The Hare and the Tortoise, The Lion and the Mouse, and The Grasshopper and the Ant. The work will feature original musical composition and enhanced accessibility
experiences. For the third commission, I will prioritize the artistry of a disabled choreographer providing a platform and resources for them to create a full-scale production. Join me, us, as we embark on this mission, envisioning the future of AXIS and moving the field forward.
