Performing Group

At its core, BODYSONNET is a collective of young contemporary dance makers and performers. Our foremost mission is to initiate projects in an array of communities that provide locals with unique and inclusive performance experiences. While we are a collective of artists fluent in dance, we aim to make work which highlights the intersectionality of many mediums. Founded in 2019, the collective has explored performance in both traditional and non-traditional spaces. These include found spaces of racquetball courts in a local athletic center, a large open field on a boarding school campus, a sculpture garden in the Berkshires, as well as thrust and proscenium theater spaces. A principle effort in BODYSONNET’s mission is to create with zero waste in an entire process and share dance with communities that feel they lack certain accessibility to the arts.
