performa/dance, cofounded in 2014 by Jennifer Hart and Edward Carr, is a project-based company in Austin, Texas. Its mission is to nurture and support new, creative voices in contemporary dance, thereby enriching the local arts community by engaging audiences and exposing them to the connective, transformative, and transcendent power of dance. We seek to create dialogues with artists across geographies and media, inviting them to take risks and cultivate their art, with the aim of fostering cross-cultural understanding and deepening artistic excellence.

We will soon commence work on new projects to premier in the summer of 2016. Stay tuned for more updates and ways to get involved.
