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. For the past 7 years, Jennifer Muller/The Works (JMTW) has gathered together prominent female choreographers to present an annual New York City season in a shared program format. The festival format is popular and widespread; however, seven years ago it was still unusual for established companies to agree to share a series of performances, presenting work on the same program. With the overarching success of the festival, this year JMTW is proud to expand WOMEN / CREATE! – A Festival of Dance in order to present not four, but seven acclaimed female choreographers in the span of one week at New York Live Arts.

WOMEN / CREATE! is an opportunity to witness companies of expertise and impact – choreographers, each with a powerful original voice who create work from unique points of view, yet share a sensibility that combines virtuosic movement with an expressive edge that moves minds and hearts.
