What is a typical performance like? Virtuosic, unexpected, welcoming, cool, thoughtful, beautiful, kinetic, athletic and innovative. Brenda Way, Artistic Director of ODC had this to say: “I love the wide ranging and dynamic vision…unique, unexpected, touching, powerful and glorious physicality.”
AXIS redefines traditional notions of dance, providing choreographers with the tools to explore a new movement vocabulary and expand their choreographic voice. The result is a collaborative communication between all the dancers on stage, which AXIS has termed ‘physically integrated dance.’
As a repertory company, performances highlight the talents of several renowned contemporary choreographers and composers, allowing the audience to experience different choreographic and musical styles. Ultimately, AXIS is building a new dance audience by presenting cutting-edge and professional work that is accessible to all and is relevant to disabled people.
