Alexander Davis Dance (ADD) is a project based contemporary dance company located in Boston, MA.
ADD believes that dance and movement has the power to create empathetic and dramatic responses from diverse audiences. Drawing from pop culture and the pedestrian, we engage in performances that display the innate theatricality of everyday life. We show the universality of the human experiences, while illuminating queer and forgotten perspectives. We make performances that connect people to other people, the past to the present and memories to dreams. We bring forward under repersented queer narratives, while providing a platform for alternative repersentations. We reveal the Imperfections that exist along the lifelong journey to negotiate the Perfect.
