With a shared desire to address the resilience of veterans, AXIS Dance Company joins forces with beloved SF-based choreographer Joe Goode and composer Ben Juodvalkis to create a new work to go again.  Other works on AXIS' 2016  touring program include Divide, a trio by UK-based Marc Brew, and Dix minutes plus tard, Sonya Delwaide's evocative and theatrical female duet.

“There is a pressing need in our communities to frankly address how we are supporting our veterans who have returned from service or are still serving,” said Judith Smith, Artistic Director of AXIS Dance Company. “As concerned citizens, the veterans’ situation has weighed heavily on many of us.  Members of our company know what it is like to live with challenges associated with disability and we believe the stories of veterans’ resiliency are important stories to share.” 

The show is 90 minutes including one intermission.

AXIS exists to change the face of dance and disability. 

AXIS Dance Company has become one of the world’s most acclaimed and innovative ensembles of performers with and without disabilities. Founded in 1987, AXIS has paved the way for a powerful contemporary dance form called physically integrated dance. 

Since then, their performances have won numerous awards and the Company has toured extensively throughout the U.S. and abroad. AXIS also dramatically expanded its education and outreach programs creating Dance Access for Adults and Dance Access/KIDS!

Today, AXIS collaborates with world-class choreographers and composers to create completely new and innovative performances.  Acclaimed by critics around the world, AXIS is the recipient of multiple awards and honors.
