A truly unique company that solidly connects with nature, the sounds of the Southwest and the rhythms of the Earth.
Since 1985, O-T-O Dance has been the moving force of dance in the Southwest. In its early years, the company presented works primarily of modern and site-specific origin, generally exploring native and natural influences and environments. In 1991, the company began learning and training in all aspects of Aerial Dance from mentor and master aerialist, Robert Davidson. Davidson’s influence and mentorship significantly changed O-T-O Dance. Robert Davidson helped the company become aware of the entire space of the stage, not simply the dance floor. New and exciting possibilities, pushing the boundaries of the dance experience, suddenly became possible. Since that time, Artistic Director, Anne Bunker, has further developed this aesthetic by merging Modern and Aerial Dance into a unique form that has captivated audiences worldwide. The company has toured nationally and internationally to Ireland, Russia, Mexico, Central and South America.
O-T-O Dance, known for its adventurous physicality and visually compelling performances, will stimulate, mesmerize and engage the minds and hearts of the most discriminating audience. The company’s multi dimensional mix of aerial dance, live music and video projection serve up a surreal buffet of performance art that has something for everyone.
