Project in Motion is a 501c3 non-profit dance company founded in 1998 and incorporated in 1999.We develop collaborative audio/video, theatrical, terrestrial and aerial dance productions and perform on traditional aerial apparatuses, as well as custom built devices and set pieces of our own design. We seek to afford artists and their community the opportunity to experiment and develop the world of performance through creative workshops and collaborative projects.

Between the four scheduled shows of the 2010-2011 year, we will also be remodeling and transforming our rehearsal space into a small space venue. Our mission is to allow artists and their community the opportunity to collaboratively experiment within, as well as expand, the world of performance. Many new and exciting opportunities for Project In Motion's second decade.

In the past thirteen years Project In Motion has performed in historic homes, along the banks of the Rio Grande, and in New York lofts, in addition to many other locations. Utilizing projected color, poetry, prose, musical collaboration, as well as custom designed, and traditional aerial apparatuses, Project In Motion uses movement and dance to redefine story and elaborate on the way we experience live performance. Project In Motion has produced yearly offerings for the local performance season since 2000.

Our most recent collaborative effort debuted in April of 2010. The piece, titled The Palace at Night, is a series of vignettes inspired by the work of Alberto Giacometti. The vignettes are comprised of aerial and terrestrial dance pieces performed on, in, and around a custom built sculpture. Inspired by Giacometti's sculpture and was designed in a joint effort between Project In Motion's artistic director and sculptor/aerialist Trevor Boswell.
