The programming is designed to welcome both dance aficionados and newcomers to contemporary dance with work that encourages audiences to see dance in a different light. The project coordinator, Wendy Rogers, describes these recently-created dances as robust, delicate, precise, chaotic, familiar, mysterious, startling and serene.

The project, which includes master classes and video screenings, is funded by the University of California Institute for Research in the Arts; the Department of Dance at UCR; the Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts at UCR; the Department of Theater and Dance at UCSD; the Department of World Arts and Cultures at UCLA; and the Riverside Art Museum.
