MOVERS

The People Movers (TPM) is a dance and production collaborative under the direction of Kate Ladenheim. TPM creates socially, politically, and culturally relevant works that reveal the inherently performative qualities of our world. We combine thoughtful, highly physical movement with innovative design and technology. Additionally, TPM is committed to raising up the work of other artists through producing relevant and engaging events and performances. Through both performance and production work, TPM holds the conviction that bodies are receptacles for social, political, and cultural memory.  In addition to embodied social awareness, TPM constantly questions preconceived notions around contemporary dance, how it is constructed, what environments it can exist in, and its life and consequence beyond the physical performance – be it through emotional, social, or technologically experimental means.

CURRENT PROJECT: GLASS

Right now, we’re hard at work creating our newest performance installation: GlassGlass is about the fight for status, confidence, and attention that women engage in their careers and personal lives. It involves hoop skirts, carefully constructed spatial patterns, power poses, and even nail painting.

Intrigued? We thought you might be.

Oh, hey there, new friend.

Right now, we're hard at work creating our newest performance installation: Glass. Glass is about the fight for status, confidence, and attention that women engage in their careers and personal lives. It involves hoop skirts, carefully constructed spatial patterns, power poses, and even nail painting.
