Under the artistic direction of Yolande Snaith, IMAGOmoves assembles groups of artists and dancers based in San Diego, to create performance works on a project to project basis.
IMAGOmoves is committed to creating collaborative performance works that cross disciplines, media and boundaries, to foster synthesis between the artistic languages of movement, visual imagery, text, music and sound. As the name suggests, the work embraces the process of metamorphoses, from the initial germ of an idea to the emergence of the developed work in the presence of an audience. The company’s creative process and performance vocabularies are informed by contemporary dance, and theatre practices, often merging compositional scores with set choreography, crafting disparate elements into a seamless whole. The performance space serves as a container for visually striking and physically charged behavioral worlds with their own internal logic and movement language, inviting multiple readings, associations and resonant experience.
IMAGOmoves seeks to connect with audiences across a diverse demographic, embracing the potential that different sites and spaces suggest, in community locations, urban sites, city centers, gallery spaces and more conventional performance spaces.
