Introducing the MOVEMENT Series.

Presented by KANEKO and tbd. Dance Collective, the MOVEMENT series will present site specific, multidisciplinary performances focused on modern and contemporary dance.

tbd. Dance Collective kicked off the first performance in the MOVEMENT series, titled FORM.

FORM, an original dance performance, explored concepts of motion and form in relation to the human body as an individual and as part of a greater entity. Combining visual art, sculpture, various tactile materials, lighting elements from the exhibition, and a live sound score, the artists examined the nature of human connection and our kinetic relationship to one another within space.

About MOVEMENT

Presented by KANEKO and tbd. Dance Collective, the MOVEMENT series will present site specific, multidisciplinary performances focused on modern and contemporary dance.  Performances will investigate the choreographic process, foster collaboration, and challenge audience perceptions of dance as an art form.  There is a universal nature to the human condition, movement found within dance can be one of the most powerful tools of communication we possess and provide the medium in which we connect.

About tbd. Dance Collective

tbd. is an Omaha based modern and contemporary dance collective founded in 2014 by a group of artists and dancers who wanted to create, learn, explore, and perform movement together. The idea of the collective developed organically based on a need for more consistent performance and choreographic opportunities for modern dancers in Nebraska. What began as an unknown, and self-made DIY dance project, quickly grew into an established and recognized fixture in the Omaha arts community.

Through organizations like KANEKO and the Under the Radar Festival, tbd. has been able to create performances that challenge audience perceptions of dance as an art form, and facilitate workshops that enrich people’s lives with movement and self expression. Our work is the result of collaborations and relationships we have fostered with artists throughout the community who specialize in lighting, sound, music, visual art, and film. Through these collaborations, tbd. has been able to expand upon the creative process of building choreography and produce multidisciplinary movement-based performances.

Our mission is to produce unique and quality art through movement, to collaborate with other artists throughout the community so that our work is both innovative and relevant, to encourage critical dialogue about choreography and performance, and continue the growth and support of modern/contemporary dance in Omaha.
