Mission Statement

Our Mission

With a playful disregard for artistic boundaries, Off-Leash Area Contemporary Performance Works recombines vocabularies and styles to create deeply transforming experiences for its audiences. The work results in a union of the vocabularies of physical theatre, dance, music, and visual art. Our creation process is extensive and involves visual storyboarding and a collaborative rehearsal process with our performers and designers. Our goal is to link all of the artistic elements not only as an artistic aesthetic, but as an interdependent and emotionally linked whole. In all our work, we strive to create a project that is both artistically challenging for us and a thought-provoking yet fiercely emotional experience for the audience. While ideas are valuable and social and political agendas are worthy, the heart is the primary field of action in our work.

Description

Off-Leash Area: Contemporary Performance Works creates original performance work and was founded in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1999.
