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.
