in Residence New Industry Dance at the South Bend Museum of Art

Exhibition Dates:

New Industry Dance is a contemporary dance company based in South Bend, IN. New Industry brings dance work to the area through public performances, movement research, and open community classes. The company emphasizes collaboration with each other and with the community. The creative work of New Industry is often made or shown in unusual, industrial spaces around the city of South Bend.

During inResidence, New Industry will be rehearsing, developing new work, hosting classes, and performing. All of this activity will be open to the public during SBMA’s gallery hours (Wednesday through Sunday, noon–5:00 p.m. EST). When an event isn’t scheduled, full New Industry performances will be projected within the gallery and screened in the adjoining Project Room.

New Industry Dance’s vision statement:
New Industry Dance aims to facilitate a safe space for all movers to engage in introspection, discovery, and personal expression. We value artistic collaboration, community engagement, and the development of thoughtful and complex work originating from awareness, embodiment, and emotional receptivity. By collaborating with multiple voices in our community, we create work born of diverse perspectives that aims to think, question, and experience rather than tell, answer, and consume.
