TO CREATE AN ACCESSIBLE
Since its inception in 2009, Spark Movement Collective ("Spark") has flourished into a force on the independent and contemporary dance scene with Artistic Director and Founder Chelsea Koenig at the helm. Spark's mission is to create an accessible dance experience for audience members, dancers, and choreographers alike.
Spark captures the discrete elements of dance to deliver performances comprised of athletic yet fluid choreography and a brand of signature honesty intrinsic in the execution of pieces. This approach is bound together with a narrative that results in fresh, innovative, and meaningful pieces that uniquely connect with both audience members and the community at large.
In 2012, Spark self-produced its first solo show, Push to Play, at University Settlement’s Speyer Hall on the Lower East Side. Since then, Spark has produced a number of highly acclaimed performances for adults and families including most recently, The Velveteen Rabbit at The Town School and 21 Dates at the Actors Fund Arts Center in Downtown Brooklyn.
