The company’s repertory has been presented in festivals and venues internationally and throughout the region including: Hartford’s Charter Oak Cultural Center, the Wadsworth Atheneum, Real Art Ways, the International Festival of Arts and Ideas in New Haven, Provincetown Dance Festival, Bates Dance Festival in Maine, Boston Center for the Arts, New York Live Arts, Dance New Amsterdam, DUMBO Dance Festival, Artists of Tomorrow Festival, the 92nd Street Y, and Teatro Cantiere Florida in Florence, Italy.
