Danza Orgánica unfolds societal issues through intensive research and collaboration, and embodies these findings to create challenging and honest dance theater. DO reaches within the ordinary and extraordinary movements of the body- to produce complex, refreshing, and engaging dance-theater performances. We transcend disciplines, combining different art forms, while still retaining a primacy for dance and movement."
