Psychopomp Dance Theater

Performing Art – Los Angeles - Downtown, CA

Psychopomp Dance Theater was founded by Shenandoah Harris in 2017. The company seeks to create movement that is born from production and design elements, transporting the audience. Through collaboration, the company works to break free from the habitual ways the body moves. Focusing on authentically soulful and deeply spiritual movement qualities the movement style is highly athletic, raw, grounded and visceral. The material can be described as a mix of modern, contemporary, acrobatic and capoeira styles. Psychopomp works to connect not only physically and emotionally but also spiritually to each other and the work they create, allowing a space for the audience to witness and reflect upon the core ideas and questions around what it is to be human. Pyschopomp is committed to new movement innovation and melding of the elements of design, allowing the work to engage all different types of viewers in a new and direct way. Since its inception the company has performed throughout Southern California, including but not limited to LMU’s Susan G. Koman 2017 Fundraiser, Nebula Dance Lab’s 2018 HH11 Festival, UC Santa Barbara’s Summer Performances, Diavolo Dance Theater’s Veteran’s Project Fundraiser, Front and Main Festival 2018, and Highways Performance Space New Shoe’s 18.
