Nacre, established in 2008, is a professional dance company whose mission is to revive/reinvigorate modern dance, a form of artistic expression that exploded in the 1920's, and bring it into the "modern" age. The purpose of Nacre, which is French for 'Mother of Pearl' is two-fold:
- 1) To educate the masses about modern dance by including classic signature works from Isadora Duncan, Doris Humphrey, Anna Sokolow, Ted Shawn, May O'Donnell, Eleanor King, Ruth Currier, Charles Weidman and others.
- 2) To grow the art form and generate awareness by featuring guest choreographers to showcase up and coming work (and potential future masters?) through an audition/selection process.
Watching this program was like floating through the history of dance. Not only was it a wonderful representation of Nacre's mission of preserving and honoring historic dances, but the performance embodied the passion and devotion that continues on today with newly choreographed dances."
