Mission Statement

Turning the Wheel Productions (TTW) is an intergenerational dance/theatre company committed to the collaborative creation of works of art that are rooted in and restorative for the communities in which we perform and teach. Through extensive outreach programs to youth and elders, and a working model that is based on inclusiveness, collaboration, and unconditional acceptance, we strive to make art accessible to people of all ages, experience, and cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Description

Turning the Wheel conducts workshops wherein participants are guided by a combination of highly structured compositional exercises and very open improvisational forms, creating choreography and text based on their own stories, histories, and physical abilities. We incorporate these creations and the unique issues of each community into the larger context of the performances. Producing performance pieces that are developed collaboratively by experienced professional artists and diverse community members blends artistic excellence with accessibility.

Turning the Wheel facilitates coming back into relationship with our interdependence as human beings, and with the need for love, not power, to form the basis for how we live. We are passionately committed to building and sustaining transformative communities that are inclusive of all people, and that reach for and model unconditional love and acceptance as the norm.

These communities are safe places to express our authentic, creative selves, through dancing and singing and sharing our stories with each other. The model is highly collaborative and empowering for all participants.

Turning the Wheel currently conducts programs in Boulder CO, Missoula MT, Cedar Rapid IA, Wilmington NC, Los Angeles CA, San Antonio TX, and Andover/Lawrence MA.
