The Ensemble inspires change through innovative, movement-based, multi-arts performance on stage that examines social and personal issues of our time.
We are excited to once again be participating in the 2018 partnership with the Travelers Championship Birdies for Charity program, where non-profit organizations like Judy Dworin Performance Project can get donations and receive a 15% bonus on every dollar raised!
Last year with your help, JDPP raised over $11,000 through Birdies for Charity, and we used those funds to support the organization in our outreach to over 1,000 children in our Moving Matters! and Bridging Boundaries programming—which allowed us to touch so many lives through the arts – lives of those marginalized, lives of underserved children and lives fragmented by incarceration.

We will be offering several opportunities for the public to join us for open rehearsals at the Hartford Public Library’s downtown branch (Main Street) from now until the premiere on October 12, 2018. Come and see the Ensemble move through the library spaces exploring open and closed spaces, creating walls and breaking them down, traveling suitcases as their signature as they create a platform for reflection on some of today’s most pressing issues. Our rehearsals will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on June 14 and 21st; August 16, 21 and 28th; September 13, 20, 27th; and October 4th. We invite you to come and be a part of our process.

“In some ways, Dworin represents the Connecticut dance scene today, sailing in many different directions, finding voice and purpose in uncharted territory.”
Director of the Greater Hartford Dance Umbrella
Tonight’s performance of The Witching Hour was truly exceptional. You all reminded us that dance is ephemeral unless we keep doing it..….The audience was captivated, holding its breath for the next movement of dancers in this new space, seamlessly breathing together and each breath and movement contributed meaningfully to the telling of this story. And we all breathed in the spoken and sung words as part of the magic of movement. Read more
