The company thrives on seeking out challenges of discovery that occur within the moment, compositionally and conceptually. Choreographic complexity, and the articulation of multiple pathways through and between spaces, are a main focus. In collaboration with his dancers, Thompson intensely values researching the fusion of theater and contemporary dance. With a passionate investigation of dance and physical theater, danceTactics aims to create connections between abstraction and narrative with each new work.
