Jenny Oliver founded Connections Dance Theater in 2014, which aims to develop the technical and performance ability of dancers, and expand the ways dancers can promote the welfare of others. During her residency, Jenny will develop the choreography and set design for “Hot Water Over Raised Fists.” Sparked by the struggles of indigenous people at Standing Rock and the struggle for clean water in Flint, Michigan, “Hot Water Over Raised Fists” will invite artists and audience to understand the necessity of protest.

Heather Stewart is a Canadian-born choreographer and dance artist whose work has spanned North America and Europe. She builds her work in collaboration with Montreal based composer Marc Bartissol, through a generous, reciprocal process in which the music and choreography are given equal space and importance. During her residency she will work with Marc alongside a projection artist and costume designer to create a new interdisciplinary work entitled “ours”. Inspired by abandoned house in St. Louis, Missouri her new work will explore the theme of deterioration as allegory for the places and relationships in our lives that we leave behind.
