Evolving Doors Dance
Evolving Doors Dance is a queer-centered contemporary dance company that cultivates, collaborates, builds community, educates, and performs while nurturing the art of dance and movement and its place in our world. The company works to present politically motivated, professional, relevant, accessible, contemporary modern dance. As EDD’s work paints pictures only bodies and spacial relationships can conjure, it uses dance as a medium to bring human and social awareness to its audience and its community–both locally and nationally. The company presents dance woven with political impressions, born from visions of equality, and filled with unmistakably universal human connections and themes that cross lines of sex, gender, ethnicity, and class. From the interaction of an intimate duet to echoes of the call for equal rights, performances seek to evoke, engage and evolve. Dances often strive to spark engagement in ways that create questions, uncover fears, investigate relationships, question behaviors and promote self-examination. Ultimately, Evolving Doors Dance connects with people through dance and uses dance and the body as the ultimate expression of artistic, political and social ideas and views. EDD is a queer-run organization that works toward queer visibility in the arts and in dance, creating safe and welcoming spaces and opportunities for GLBTQ movers in the Denver Metro. The company’s director, Angie Simmons, often offers contemporary, and somatics-focused classes in the Denver area. See the company website for more info.
