Scapegoat Garden is a Hartford-based creative vehicle for dance making and curatorial processes that foreground the power of the body, place, collaboration, and interdisciplinarity in our creative processes. Founded by Deborah Goffe in 2002, Scapegoat Garden strives to contribute to the ongoing evolution of contemporary dance as a viable American art form by exemplifying and nurturing the innovation of local dance ecologies. This is accomplished by forging relationships with artists and communities, helping people see, create and contribute to a greater vision of ourselves, each other, and the places we call home. 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.
