Volta, directed by Mamie Green and Megan Paradowski, is a dance theatre company that aims to fuse physicality, theatricality and a multidisciplinary approach to creation and performance. In our work, Volta incorporates spoken word, sound, poetry, memories, dreams, fantasies, costuming, and set design to create sensorily rich and dynamic creations. We believe that the body is the most honest mode of communication and expression. By using the body we can take the experience of being human and convey these shared feelings to an audience. For Volta, art is a means of communication; communal anger, joy, fear, and love that connects us all.
