Movement Workshop Group
THE PLANET CONNECTIONS THEATRE FESTIVITY is New York’s premiere eco-friendly socially conscious theatre festival. Fostering a diverse cross-section of performances, the festival seeks to inspire artists and audiences both creatively and fundamentally. At the heart of the festivity are like-minded individuals striving to create professional, meaningful theater, while supporting organizations which give back to the community at large.
THE MOVEMENT WORKSHOP GROUP (MWG) creates dance theater works that transport audiences and the company members to higher, more inspired psychic states. They combine cutting-edge physical acting with highly athletic choreography. The work is dynamic and touching; emphasizing story and characterization through dance and gesture. Movement Workshop Group company members train together in both modern dance and physical acting techniques as well as teach the company’s methods to the public. Furthermore, as a collaborative, MWG works closely with playwrights and dramaturges to craft original text and with bands and sound designers to create evocative soundscapes. This joining of artistic voices makes the Movement Workshop Group a unique creative force.
