Led by artistic director and choreographer Nichole Canuso, Nichole Canuso Dance Company (NCDC) presents movement-based, often participatory, works that incorporate dance, theater, and visual art, and are often performed in nontraditional spaces. The company has toured to such venues as New York's Dance Theater Workshop and Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival, San Francisco's ODC, and Washington, DC's Dance Place. NCDC has received Center support for several projects, including Midway Avenue (2013), a movement research collaboration with UK choreographer Wendy Houstoun; TAKES (2010), a multimedia performance installation exploring dance and cinema; and Wandering Alice (2008), a site-specific performance inspired by Lewis Carroll and Haruki Murakami. In 2016, the Center awarded a Discovery grant to NCDC to develop new performance techniques that integrate movement, voice, and personal history.
