TAPIT/new works Ensemble Theater
TAPIT/new works creates, produces and performs original works, collaborating with artists working in the disciplines of theater, tap dance, visual arts and music; brings the arts to audiences of all ages and backgrounds; encourages participation in the arts through outreach; and enriches the lives of individuals and communities. Our work is all about artistic innovation and community connection. Established in 1985, this internationally touring company blends the talents of producing artistic directors, Donna Peckett and Danielle Dresden, an award-winning choreographer and playwright, to create dynamic and engaging new, multi-disciplinary theater. Our productions are as nimble as they are fresh. TAPIT/new works has performed and conducted residencies in venues ranging from international festivals to a small-town judge’s chambers – and everything in between. Our work shows that the shortest distance between people is found through the arts. This profile courtesy of Arts & Democracy.
