Judy Dworin Performance Project

Moving for Change Since 1989.

Judy Dworin Performance Project (JDPP) harnesses the arts as a powerful change agent and catalyst for collaboration and community. JDPP’s performances and residencies create spaces that release the imagination and allow deep reflection, constructive action and out of the box exploration of self and society. We celebrate the dignity of all beings, the wisdom of the body, the deep reflective capacity of the mind and the hopeful possibility that through the arts we can together work for and create a more positive world for the present moment and the future. In the darkest places we find inspiration and hope. Come join us!

Tub, Judy Dworin’s original dance theater work first staged in 1992, will return this December as part of JDPP’s 30th anniversary performance titled She Speaks Her Peace. Featured in the promotional artwork, Tub uses spoken word, movement, and visual imagery and light to draw the audience into a consideration of sexuality, struggle, and overcoming expectations imposed on women. Kathy Borteck Gersten will return to the stage for this special performance. See this timeless piece at Hartford Stage, December 9, 2019. jdpp-sshp.eventbrite.com ... See MoreSee Less

In Honor of Loved Ones...
This past weekend, 21 incarcerated moms, their children, and caregivers participated in JDPP’s special Mother’s Day visit. A total of 86 people took part in this wonderful outreach, which helps keep families strong during the forced separation of incarceration, and is supported by grants and gifts from generous supporters like you.

Please make a gift to JDPP in honor or memory of the important family members and friends in your life, and we will send a card to let them know.

Father’s Day is coming up, and this is a great way to acknowledge your dad or father figure. Thank you!
