The Equus Project

The Equus Projects are hiring Male and Female dancers for upcoming performances and projects for Spring/Summer 2022. All dancers are welcome to apply. Please note that our work is in collaboration with Equines and experience working with horses is prefered.  The best way to familiarize with JoAnna's work is to participate in some of our virtual workshops:

Workshop Title: Dance Differently - A Virtual Workshop for Advanced Movers and Creators.
When: Thursdays from 4:30-6:40pm EST. Begins February 3rd and runs for 8 weeks. Drops-ins are accepted.
Who: Collaborative Teaching between JoAnna Mendl Shaw (NYC) and Audrey Rachelle (Seattle, WA) with LIVE Musician Stewart Singer (Albuquerque, NM)

Note: This workshop is geared towards more advanced movers.



Audrey began co-exploring with Shaw six years ago, in weekly Equus Projects research sessions. Moving from an interspecies perspective the Equus Projects company devised countless improvisations scores, choreographic strategies and a somatic practice informed by working with equines. The workshops, aptly named Dance Differently, became an ideal way for dancers to audition for the Equus company. Workshops focused on heightened the Physical Listening skills and real-time decision-making, internal rule structures and developing dynamic choreographic trajectories. Each class yielded small choreographic gems.
