Peter DiMuro/Public Displays of Motion

Peter DiMuro/Public Displays of Motion makes dance and dance theatre, often translating the poetic and humane within everyday lives into performance. These can be grand spectacles on-site or miniature dances that happen on table tops, as well as more traditional performances on stage. The company of dancers are adept in multiple techniques of movement and performance and span an age-range of five decades, creating a rarely seen dimension of humanity within a dance company.

Recent performances include the 2-hour site specific opening ceremony of Boston's 2016 Outside The Box Festival, the Mayor of Boston's Artist Reception for the Americans for the Arts Conference and "Everyday Cabaret" at the Boston Center for the Arts, where the company is a performing artist resident.

Artistic Director Peter DiMuro returned to Boston after touring internationally for 15 years, creating work for, performing with and eventually serving as Artistic Director of Liz Lerman Dance Exchange. His work has been commissioned by major presenters throughout the US, including his intergenerational LGTBQ inspired "Near/Far/In/Out" and "Gumdrops and the Funny Uncle", an alternative to the "Nutcracker" for alternative families. Peter often speaks on dance, as a form of dance literacy and advocates for the field.
