About

Dylan creates kaleidoscopic dance theatre that moves between traditional and non-traditional performance spaces. She believes in creating question-driven theatre to form community through exploring heritage, culture, time, and memory.​ Dylan is excited by art that offers a plurality of experiences and a variety of answers to a question. Her interest currently lies in creating collaborative work that blurs the line between the audience and performer and curates both intentional and unintentional audiences in unexpected places. She is also very excited by Jewish folklore and magical realism - the wafting smells of matzo ball soup cooking onstage and the feeling of dancing with dirt underneath her feet. Dylan strives to use art as a way to raise consciousness, make change, and spread light.
