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!
