"The artist as activist is as old as time and D.I.R.T. presents the work of artists that are addressing local/global challenges through their creative process. There are many ways that an artist may address such challenges - be it from the explicit content of their choreography, to looking at who has a voice, to their process." -Dance Mission

Thanks to the support of our arts community, family and friends, as well as the amazing generosity of strangers, the Mud Water Project is now fully funded for our Spring 2017 performance! We would like to give thanks to the Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation, Left Tilt Fund, CA$H Grant, and Zellerbach Family Foundation for providing us with the grants necessary to continue development. If you would like to continue the support for future performances, any gift no matter how small is always greatly appreciated! Thank you.

Mud Water's weekend premiere at the Dance Mission Theater's D.I.R.T Festival was so well received (it sold out THREE shows) that the group has decided to continue developing the project into a full (evening) length piece! We are currently working on gathering enough funding to produce one show (including compensation for all cast members and collaborators) before we can resume rehearsals. To help support this project, you can make a contribution by clicking here. Or email us at info@mudwatertheatre.com to find out more about making a tax-deductible donation.

Mud Water was featured on NPR's weekend edition. Click below to listen!

We have a new collaborator on board - Disasterpeace! Named by Rolling Stone as one of the "10 New Artists You Need to Know," Disasterpeace, otherwise known as Rich Vreeland, is an incredible Berkeley-based music composer who will be working with us on scoring some of the music for our project.

You can check out some of his past releases (such as his highly acclaimed scores for the movie "It Follows" as well as the award-winning game "Fez") on his website
