Celebrating the Innovation of Women in Choreography

Women choreographers have been pioneers of contemporary dance since its inception, and WOMEN / CREATE! - A Festival of Dance reconnects with those roots to present a season of strong works by seven visionary female choreographers. During this 8th season, Armitage Gone! Dance, Buglisi Dance Theatre, Carolyn Dorfman Dance, The Francesca Harper Project, Jennifer Muller/The Works, Helen Simoneau Danse, and Katarzyna Skarpetowska (featuring The Richmond Ballet) come together for a distinguished week of programming that celebrates women creators and their unapologetic voices in the dance world.

These choreographers produced a fascinatingly satisfying program despite differences in styles, techniques and philosophies. All dance programs should be as well organized and curated.
