Megan Bascom & Dancers’ (MB&D) work is highly collaborative and relationship driven, involving memory, intimate interaction, and an overall commitment to expansive motion that expresses physical potential. Socially conscious, impactful and relatable, the company engages a diverse community of dancers, composers, visual artists, videographers, students and workshop guests to come together on one topic from many different perspectives. Megan Bascom & Dancers utilize the characteristics, memories, impressions, and nuances of each collaborating artist as a choreographic platform to inspire and create works that evolve directly from the human experience, provoke feeling, and ignite the imagination.
