The mission of the Mpowerdance Project is to challenge the dominant human-centric view of our place in the natural world, using interdisciplinary and interactive mediums of dance, art, film, and performance. With skill, research, memory, and experience, we deliver an encounter that resonates with the wonders found in the wild, exploring the mystery of unity in diversity.
Mpowerdance Project and collaborators entertain, enrich, inspire, and connect diverse audiences, both locally in San Francisco and globally through the Global Dance Project (GDP), an annual choreographic offering first launched in 2012. Through film and screen dance, the Global Dance Project seeks to expand the collaborative experience with communities across the planet.
On October 17th & 18, 2015, GDP launched evaWAVE as the first stage production of “Dance Echo In Reverse” at NOHspace Theater in San Francisco. In 2018, GDP developed the project Move with Dual Harmonics.

Integrating dance, art, film, music, and spoken word into a powerful somatic language, timeless, archetypal, universal, grieving, and celebratory all at once. The liberating power of truth. The redeeming power of love. The creative power of forests, seas and psyches. This four-minute film captures the essence of what mpowerdance project offers us in these perilous times, and provides an insightful glimpse into the richness of Mary Power’s sustained vision.
