MOVERS

The People Movers is a dance and production collaborative led by choreographer & producer Kate Ladenheim. With work that spans stage performances, dance film, interactive installations, robotics and augmented reality apps, we create ambitious dance performances that sit at the nexus of feminism, technology, and activism.

In addition to our own artistic projects, The People Movers have constructed 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.

Current Project: BABYFACE

learn more

TPM’s Artistic Director Kate Ladenheim and The Robotics, Automation, and Dance (RAD) Lab at the University of Illinois at Champaign Urbana are collaborating on a dance and robotics project titled Babyface.

Babyface responds to feminized tropes around innocence, servitude, cuteness and spectacle. Centering a “cyborg” performer who was designed to be perfect, the work uncovers tension between humans and machines through original sound, choreography, and interaction with a pair of large-scale, robotic, breath-activated angel wings.
