Outside the Vortex

Outside the Vortex (2015 – ongoing) is a dance performance in which a new version of the interactive vortex will “partner” with the dancers. It uses the methodology and programming developed for Dream Vortex, but focuses on a different sort of dream, the aspirations of researchers who don’t fit stereotypical norms of gender, ethnicity or outlook. Their true stories become a springboard for imaginative, empathetic reflections on diversity and creativity.


Choreographer Donna Sternberg, with dancers Christian Fajardo and Nicole Powell, improvise movement with the Dream Vortex in preparation for Outside the Vortex.
