Dancews new work "It's a beautiful day too bad it won't last and neither will you" is created in the year following the untimely death of choreographer Ella Dawn W-S' father. This reality is both central and dislocated within the dance. Personal histories collide with our limited collective imagination for fantasy and grief as dancers reach, repair, and refashion across the surface of a performance. Everyday materials and conversations are distorted to expand our imaginations and create memorial landscapes, idols, and altars.

Dancews is a movement collaboration facilitated by Ella Dawn W-S. Through using the body as a primary source, we experiment with scores, paraphrasing, and approximating. Personal histories collide with socially constructed limitations to create a heightened, absurdist encounter.

The Performance Project @ University Settlement:
Since 2007, The Performance Project has been offering local young artists and professional emerging artists opportunities to connect, create and publicly present new work. We support artists who are interested in how live art can heal, empower and activate. The artists we work with commit to organizational and creative practices that promote trust, imagination and power-sharing. Our incubator for the next generation of citizen artists is fueled by our distinct, yet connected, cohorts: the Artist-in-Residence Program, The Performance Project Fellowship Program for Early Emerging Artists, our Community Arts and Culture Councils for Public Housing Residents and our annual Performance-Making Intensive for Young Artists & Leaders. We also host other community programs and dynamic guest artists seeking an affordable and supportive opportunity to self-produce their work.
