creating social conversation through contemporary dance
Since establishing their non-profit status in 2016, kairos dance co has explored social topics to inspire discussion and promote action within its community. Their 2016 debut of ‘Light in the Moonless Midnight’, a full-length piece focusing on erasing the stigma of mental illness, was met with an emotionally stirred audience response. The company performed this work again June 2017 and was invited by Tim Robbins’ Actor’s Gang to perform their new work, entitled "Paradigm" in 2018. This full-length piece explored social media and its effect on society today. In 2019 the company debuted “She Speaks”, focusing on women's empowerment and female social stigmas. The company has also touched on other socially relevant topics such as domestic abuse, and separation at the border today.
