2014 alumna Megan Pitcher and her collaborators have been very busy with their company MegLouise. Pitcher says they “have been in the studio expanding our understanding of responsivity through conversations, workshops, new performance events, and life practice. Our works invite growth, change, and disruption through digital interference, audience embodiment, and performer instigation.” Learn more about individual projects below.

Soloist Trina Hines will be performing a work by Pitcher in the Top Ten show produced by Cleveland Dance Exchange this weekend. Enjoy a video teaser.
