As mvworks closes out our fifth anniversary we are grateful to numerous groups, dancers to donors, technicians to translators, and many, many others. mvworks is blessed to have so many individuals contribute to our growth and success. The past five years have been full of tremendous accomplishment. In 2005, mvworks began essentially as a choreographer/dancer showcasing a solo. Today, we are an internationally touring company employing over 15 highly talented dancers and collaborators for numerous projects. We are committed to our vision and will continue to build upon on our success.
2010 brought with it several great opportunities. We launched the year in January with the rare occasion of remounting our last evening-length work, …within us., during the Association of Performing Arts Presenters Conference. As a direct result, we were invited to Coyoácan, Mexico for our first international tour in November. Additionally, Artistic Director, Megan V. Sprenger, sat on the Dance Theater Workshop Fresh Tracks artist selection panel, a premier emerging artist platform. mvworks also participated in One-Shot, a new video dance program created to maximize existing resources to spark creativity and community. This project signaled mvworks’ first foray into video choreography.
As outstanding as 2010 has been, 2011 is projected to be just as exciting. We are well under way in the development of our next major project “Hold my hand,” a quintet investigating communication and the need to feel connected to one another. In February, Ms. Sprenger’s curated program Am I too Close? will be shown at the 92nd Street Y through their Friday’s at Noon Series. mvworks is also in conversation with several different organizations and colleges regarding work in the 2011 – 2012 season. As projects develop, we will keep you updated.
As you know, mvworks’ success would not be possible without the generosity of our donors. mvworks has been overwhelmed by the support provided this year as we recognize the difficulties of donating during these uncertain times. A contribution of any size will make a tremendous difference as close out this amazing year and prepare for another rewarding season. Without you mvworks is just a dream, with you it is a vibrant, passionate company creating and touring “thrilling work” (This Week in New York) that “demands attention” (The New York Times).
Wishing you the warmest of Holiday Seasons,
