Project Description

  • Our Women Before Us is a transdisciplinary arts collective aimed at creating opportunities for young people to share their stories and voices through art installation projects. We have received the incredible opportunity to present a new work, Still Life, at Gibney Dance in New York City June 27-29, 2019 as part of Gibney's Performance Opportunity Project.
  • We need your help to make this dream a reality! This project will cost us $4,000 for space rental/insurance costs and $500 in technical support costs.
  • In addition, we will offer a workshop as part of Still Life. This workshop will aim to provide an opportunity for individual participants to create and collaborate in a supportive, immersive environment. This workshop will be donation-based providing the opportunity for young people of all socio-economic backgrounds to create with us. This workshop will cost us $500 in space rental costs.  
  • Our Women Before Us is a collective composed of Megan Pinto, MFA (playwright and poet), Danielle Muzina, MFA (painter and poet), Sonja Petermann, BFA (printmaker and dancer), and Kathleen Dalton, LMSW (choreographer and social worker). The collective teaches transdisciplinary arts workshops and creates immersive fine art and performance installation projects. Most recently, the collective created an exhibit for Cleveland, Ohio’s Rooms to Let Festival and collaborated to produce Pinto’s play ‘Winter In Eden’ which was seen at Dixon Place this past May.
