if… a memoir is a love song written for humanity. Engaging questions of human freedom alongside human limitations, Sue Schroeder in collaboration with the Dance Artists of Core Dance, Christian Meyer (composer) and Simon Gentry (cinematographer) create an evening-length, physical theater choreo-poem.

Core Dance, an award-winning contemporary dance company with global reach, creates, performs, and produces compelling original dance that ignites the creative spirit and actively encourages participation and conversation with the community. For nearly four decades, Core Dance has supported innovation, collaboration, artistic risk-taking and sustainable art-making in dance.  Core Dance was co-founded in 1980 in Houston, Texas by dancer and choreographer Sue Schroeder and her sister, Kathy Russell.  Five years later, the organization added Atlanta, Georgia as a second home base, creating a context for dance that is relevant in both cities and around the globe. Core Dance uses dance to educate, question and illuminate, and is internationally recognized for its artistically driven research practices, cross-cultural and multi-disciplinary collaborations, the humanity of the individual Dance Artists, and its rigorous physicality.

Event to Support Core Dance

Core Dance creates art, facilitates art-making, and engenders art engagement for those seeking to connect with what makes us uniquely human: our intellect, our emotional body, our spiritual center. The body is our playground, movement our building blocks. Within our bodies resides the whole of life, every truth. Through dance and the process of creating it we activate that which makes us individually unique and connect it to that which makes us indivisibly One. Core Dance was founded in 1980 by Sue Schroeder. We call both Atlanta, GA and Houston, TX home. We cultivate dance awareness and education nationally and internationally through our three organizational initiatives: Core Performs, Core Presents and Core Connects. Core Performance Company, the professional contemporary dance company of Core, is internationally acclaimed for its emotionally lucid and instantly accessible work.
