Analog Dance Works is a contemporary dance company founded in 2019 by Brenna Mosser in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. Analog is committed to exploring intersections between dance and science. Our goal is to initiate dialogue about the facts of our present and the visions of our future through high-quality choreographic works and roundtable discussions.
Analog has presented work at ARENA DANCES’ Candy Box Dance Festival 2019, the Southern Theater’s Good Night at the Southern in August 2019, Earthing Productions in May 2020, and Momentary Certainties Opening Reception 2022 where we have presented various renditions of Serve Id. Through its partnership with the University of Minnesota’s Outreach for Science and Art organization (OSA), Analog has hosted several discussions on campus about the intersection of dance and science.
Analog continued its partnership with OSA through the creation of its inaugural evening of dance, Tellus, focused on environmental issues in May 2022 where it presented Serve Id by Mosser, and Cloud Cover, by company member Zoë Koenig. Alongside the works, OSA presented an interactive exhibit revealing the science behind the dance works.
Analog prioritizes inclusivity in our dance auditions by creating an open call, meaning we do not vett dancers interested in attending the audition. Resumes and headshots are not asked for, as this is a deterrent to those who may not have them.
Analog is committed to being a safer space for individuals of all gender identities. We do not assume gender - we ask for persons’ pronouns (artists, patrons, committee members, partners, etc.) and only hold events where there are gender neutral bathrooms or arrange to accommodate. We announce these accommodations in advance for all events so that all feel welcome.
These are small steps and we have so much more work to do. We look forward to expanding these steps to have a greater impact throughout our future programming.
