Company | E and Howard University announce a new commission for the next generation of choreographers, composers, film-makers and dramatic artists.
A new annual Commission for current and recent alumni of Howard University to create work for Company | E in honor of Liz Cherry Jones.
Created as a response to the COIVD 19 pandemic, ON CUE premieres new digital works created for Company | E by choreographers from around the world, at home in DC and from the dancers themselves.
Working with U.S. Embassies overseas and Foreign Missions to the United States at home in DC, Company | E's core work is to bring people and cultures together through movement, music and cross-cultural dialogue and engagement.
...a responsibility as well as an opportunity. No other art form exists solely within the human body, and passing it on is a uniquely human experience - one which transcends age, culture and language.
Since its inception Company | E has empowered people around the world, bringing uniquely American techniques to students of all ages, training trainers in methodolgy, working with small businesses in capacity building and techniques for management, mentoring next generation artists and, vitally, taking that know-how and commitment into DC Public and Charter Schools and into the classroom in our School for Dance, the Company | E Movement Center.
"The MC builds and supports whole-child learning...instilling the values of self-discipline and team building."
- Roseanna B. MC Parent 2019
The Company | E Movement Center for Dance Education teaches the next generation both the technique and the joy of movement.
"An incredible, welcoming experience."
-- Julianne K. - 2018 Alumni
"...exactly the kind of work we had imagined when creating the Performances for Young Audiences series, elegantly combining multiple art forms including modern dance, classical music, storytelling, visual arts, and theater."
-- David Kilpatrick, Director, Education Programs and Productions. The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
