Artichoke Dance Company is a national leader in eco-arts productions, engaging audiences and communities through performances and beyond. The Company meshes performance innovation with environmental activism and civic engagement to create dynamic experiences infused with forward thinking perspectives. Their productions model scientific phenomenon and occurrences in nature, reflect the interconnectedness of people and place, and make use of recycled materials. Artichoke Dance brings their signature style of movement partnering and site reflective work to Texas A&M’s campus for a week-long residency culminating in a performance tour on campus celebrating Earth Day.
Artichoke Dance Company’s original movement-based performance works exemplify environmental justice, cultivate hope, and envision a sustainable future. They utilize creative practices in the arts to engage people from all walks of life in actively working toward just and equitable climate solutions. Movement is a catalyst to both garner attention to and spur activity around the climate crisis. Through interactive activities, ecological education, creative processes and practices, hands on art making, and performances, they foster and create participatory movements that cultivate change locally and globally. For Artichoke Dance Company, the meaning of movement is both embodied physical action and participatory change making.
Their performance works have been presented from coast to coast in public parks and atriums, on beaches and shorelines, along rivers and oceans, and on streets and bridges, Recent performances include the Cooper Hewitt Museum’s design triennial, the National Gallery of Art and New York City’s Car Free Earth Day. Artichoke Dance Company has been featured in Dance Magazine, the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Inside Arts Magazine and Broadway World. Director Lynn Neuman has been featured in several podcasts including Citizen’s Climate Radio and Climate Check.
