Everett Company is an organization of diverse artists who create original concert works and video productions, carry out a wide range of innovative educational programs, and mentor new generations of young artists. Everett was founded in Providence in 1986, and has since gained substantial national recognition for its unique creative vision and effective community partnerships.
The company's concerts have toured throughout the United States and Canada, gaining numerous awards, including a New York Bessie Choreography and Creator Award, and a RI Pell Award for Excellence in the Arts. Everett's concerts include educational components which tour to schools, museums, workplaces, and other community settings. The company also runs The Carriage House Stage and School in Providence, which provides a home base for creation, performance, presenting other artists, and providing in-depth performing arts programming for urban children and youth.
Everett offers a unique, interdisciplinary approach to performance and education. Entertaining educational programs such as "The Marriage of Art and Science", "Written in the Air" (about emotional intelligence), and "Breaking Down Science" (about the physics of break dancing), engage audiences through languages as diverse as dance, speech, interactive media, and improvisational theatre. All performances employ audience participation and can be tailored to specific age groups (youth to adult). Additional workshops are available for in-service training or classrooms.
