REVOLVE

COLLABORATION. CREATION. CONNECTION.

On the cusp of its third season, Revolve Dance Project (RDP) is a collaborative performing arts nonprofit dedicated to fostering the intrinsic connection between music and dance. By facilitating working relationships between emerging composers and choreographers, RDP nurtures artistic growth and creates transformative interdisciplinary partnerships. Each season, 5-6 World Premiere collaborative works of music and dance are created for RDP's company of professional dancers and musicians and performed live for the community in unique venues. RDP aims to bring world class performance art to Rhode Island, and to impart the somatic experience of live music and dance to as many people as possible. This accelerated season overlaps with Revolve's Educational Community Programming, which features free dance and music masterclasses led by the artists of the project.

Created with the mission to restore the tradition of music and dance as living collaborations, RDP strives to share the transformative power of these art forms with its audiences. “Dance and music are historically, inherently intertwined,” says RDP founder/director Kirsten Evans, herself a professional dancer for over 14 years. “It’s so rare that choreographers and composers get to create work together, but collaboration is crucial for the growth of these artists. Revolve exists to facilitate those relationships and give artists a platform to explore their development.”
