Art as Transformation
We had a slogan for a couple of years that I really liked. It was
“Changing the World, One Artist at a Time.” Jennie told me
recently that there were so many different entities (other arts
camps, lipstick brands, who knows what?) with a similar slogan.
Well, we may not have the slogan, but we live it — sometimes
more fully than others. — heavy metal on steroids. What I heard was one of the soft-

The educational touring wing of The Shakespeare Theatre
Nimbus Dance Works of New Jersey, Shakespeare LIVE! has performed for over
First Session 300,000 students in New Jersey, New York and beyond.
Since its inception in 1997, its abridged productions have
been hailed as innovative, visually stunning and accessible to
students. The professionally-acted and directed productions
are dynamic and appealing, exciting and engaging, witty and
imaginative — giving students of all ages the opportunity to
experience Shakespeare’s works as the playwright intended
— in performance.
Love’s Labour’s Lost
by William Shakespeare
performed by Shakespeare LIVE!
Love’s Labour’s Lost is one of William Shakespeare’s early
comedies, first published in 1598. The Princess of France
with her ladies Rosaline, Maria and Katherine tell the men
wooing them (Ferdinand the King of Navarre, Biron, Longaville
and Dumain) that they must wait and undergo tests to prove
that their love is not just infatuation. King Ferdinand and his
compatriots decide to isolate themselves for three years to
study great books vowing that they will keep no company with
women during this time. However, when more lovely women
arrive on a diplomatic mission, the men fail to keep their
oaths. The ladies discover the situation and the men realise
that they truly love the ladies. The ladies banish the men to

Memo, Nimbus Dance Works’ signature work, emerged out
of a collaborative process of delving into dancers’ personal
memories for movement sources and content. In additional to
being performed as a traditional concert dance work, Memo
also serves as a community dance project that involves danc-
ers of all ages, background and abilities drawn from the com-
munity to perform alongside the professionals. This format
generally involves a residency in which community members
are led through a process of exploring their memories to gen-
erate a personalized movement vocabulary. The creation and
performance process of Memo builds memorable and mean-
ingful experiences for performers, audience members and the
community in general. Additionally, audience members are
drawn into the piece by contributing written memories of their
own which are integrated into the performance in real time.
