SHIFT is a company that also acts as a collective for networking and artistic collaboration. We are a vessel through which the artists involved will be able to make real connections with their audiences and communities. With our works we look to bring to light and express important internal and external social issues. While SHIFT is predominantly dance-focused, we intend to draw on exploring heavy collaborative effort from other artistic mediums such as music, visual art, spoken word, and more
