dancing on farms

in our constant quest for rural-based, rural-themed, and rural-economy enabled artistic practices and programs, we bring you this experimental art dance troop — who perform in the adirondacks

THE SPACE WE MAKE is a performance collective that creates site-specific works outside of traditional theater settings. These multi-media performances incorporate input from audiences, communities, and the spaces in which members build and perform. Co-founded and directed by writer/musician Caitlin Scholl & choreographer/dancer Simon Thomas-Train, the group consists of a core roster of artists based in New York City and beyond.

Our mission is to:
Create and/or promote new works of performance in specific, unusual, or heretofore unused spaces; Reimagine or repurpose specific spaces/places through creative action;
Build, perform and/or promote work that sources creative input or ideas from a community beyond the performance group;
Connect with communities through the exploration and use of non-traditional performance space;
Create new venues for audiences to experience contemporary dance, music, writing, theater, visual and media arts.
