THREE is a collection of short stories, if you will, with dances that are three minutes in length or less. Each member of the company is challenged to fulfill their choreographic vision, while creating a carefully orchestrated piece in a brief and fixed amount of time. This new collection of works premiered in Florence, Italy where the company was on tour during the Summer. THREE was also recently featured as part of the FringeArts Festival in Philadelphia.
MM2 Modern Dance Company, under the direction of Steven Weisz, has established itself as an incubator, providing support, space and opportunities for new emerging dance artists, who wish to explore the choreographic process, in order to cultivate and introduce new work to new audiences. MM2 recognizes the inherent value in nurturing developing artists as well as the collaborative spirit to foster creativity, while pushing boundaries and forward-thinking. While MM2 is artist-driven, it is also community-centered, recognizing the need to educate, advocate, support and promote artistic vitality in the region. MM2 dancers are committed to creating and performing a new body of work each year. As a presenter, MM2 serves and fosters Philadelphia’s growing modern and contemporary dance audience. It is the vision of MM2 Modern Dance Company to deliver positive, affirming and life-enriching experiences to audiences, through the medium of dance and movement, while also developing new dance fans by creating works of artistry that engage and inspire audiences.
The museum acknowledges the seed money in support of the 25th anniversary from a generous bequest from Gretchen H. Knoell.
