THE

PEOPLE

MOVERS

The People Movers is a dance and production collaborative led by choreographer & producer Kate Ladenheim. We create ambitious dance performances that sit at the nexus of feminism, technology, and activism.

We put meticulously designed, critical dances inside of warehouses, shipping containers, cars, phones, social media, and more. Inspired by the implicit urgency of these environments, our work zooms in on the ways people perform their everyday lives and survive in a sometimes unforgiving culture.

In addition to our own artistic projects, The People Movers construct tightly curated, impossibly cool, and expertly produced events in unexpected environments. Our productions raise up the work of artists whose work is provocative, critical, conscientious, and wholly original.

NAMED BEST OF 2018 BY DANCE MAGAZINE

“Kate Ladenheim and The People Movers handled heavy, heady concepts — like internalized misogyny and the patriarchal paradigm — in a way that was as artfully, entertainingly composed as it was intellectually stimulating.”
