Since 1995, we have been confronting contemporary social issues through forward thinking cross-medium artistic collaborations and integrative community programs.

Our Mission

Artichoke Dance Company offers unique public performances and educational art experiences. Through the interactive nature of dance, we help people become more physically, socially, and environmentally conscious. Our cross-medium artistic collaborations entertain, educate, and empower our audiences to create positive changes among their communities.

In 2006, Artichoke Dance Company founder, Lynn Neuman, was struck by how much trash (particularly plastics) littered the streets of her neighborhood. This led to over 10 years of groundbreaking environmentally focused dance work. Through environmental arts activism, we have inspired thousands to coalesce around pressing environmental issues and advocate for change.. and we aren't stopping now!
