PWNW Artistic Director Linda Austin’s new solo for dancer Jen Hackworth is one of 4 dances that is part of CO/MISSION. For this project, Suzanne Chi and Jamuna Chiarini have gathered together four Portland dance performers that represent a wide range of movement styles. These performers have in turn hired choreographers, whom they feel will challenge them and encourage their artistic growth, to make a new solo work to be performed at Conduit.

Normally it is the choreographer who initiates a works creation, auditions and hires dancers, rehearses them and gathers the necessary funds to bring the work to fruition. CO/MISSION shifts the paradigm of who initiates the creation process of new choreography by bringing the artistic vision into the hands of the dance performer.
