Art as Action performances and programs nurture and cultivate a wide range of Artivists: from veteran performers experimenting with a new genre to closet artists just discovering their creative potential; from people with Parkinson’s who uncover their inner dancer to at-risk youth finding a safe space to explore their place in the world.

Art as Action is an artistic outlet for performers, Young Artivists and Reconnect with your Body dancers and an incredible and thought-provoking experience for our audiences. Art as Action is the place where Artivists come alive and discover their own potential for creativity and connection.

“The whole show I was simply in awe . . . I have never seen a moving gallery put on stage like this. Not only was the choreography brilliant with bodies becoming stories of emotional struggles and sustainability but the written words were just as touching. Most importantly I left with the true definition of Artivist ingrained in my very being, now I am an Artivist!" - Art as Action Audience Member
