Mission

“We are Here Now. Our bodies sing your stories. We are humans fishing for humans. Acknowledging the fast pace of our society and embracing the impermanence of life, HNDC feels the urgency. ”

Here Now Dance Collective Brief History

Fletcher’s work manifests as live dance performance, movement based installations and short films. Her intention and passion is in framing what exists in the world, with a focus on nuance and subtly. An exposition of the light and dark, Fletcher creates dance theater spliced with abstract acts.

Fletcher founded Here Now Dance Collective in 2008 and consistently creates new work with the project, based in Brooklyn, NY. Widely recognized for her installation, multimedia, and postmodern research-driven work, since HND’s inception, the group has produced multiple evening-length works, participated in over one hundred curated theater/gallery performances, danced in a variety of festivals, and reached over 100,000 people with Fletcher’s dance-for-camera films.

“In the making process, I serve my group of gathered collaborators like a conductor, open and attuned to the impulses that arise in each of us. My passion is in framing what exists in the world – producing raw exposing material, while subverting narrative form.”
