Marquez Dance Project

Marquez Dance Project (MDP) explores human complexity through a creative lens. The intention behind our work is to recapture moments that speak to the community by raising questions about what is happening within our society, and challenging individuals to mobilize. We incorporate theatrical, physical and often surreal imagery to generate meaningful and provoking works. Dance is the central component, however we collaborate with other artists from different genres. Making these connections enriches the breadth of the work and allows a broader range of artistic investigation.
