555 Contemporary Dance Company

555 Contemporary Dance Company is a DreamMaker project of The Ink People. Established in 2015, 555 strives to pull the audience into another world during a performance. Sometimes quirky (I.e., "Raynbo Konnekshun", "Drunk Hobos"), sometimes tragically emotional (I.e., "Reue", "Hope", "Persist") and sometimes a little scary (I.e. "Shadows", "Shadows Part II: The Possession"). 555 is a troupe that believes dance is not just entertainment, but an endeavor to relate to the audience as a kindred spirit using the purest of art forms in which the artist becomes the art itself.

About Face: A Veterans Healing Sanctuary

About Face It: A Veteran Healing Sanctuary offers artist residencies for veterans of the OEF and OIF conflicts. During their stay, resident artists are introduced to mindfulness practices such as meditation and yoga.

The founder, a combat veteran himself, believes that creative expression serves as an effective healing modality when paired with mindfulness training and freedom from the stress and obligations of daily life. By opening his property to combat veterans in need of space and freedom, he is fulfilling his oath to leave no service member behind.

Donation proceeds provide each resident artist with housing, a living stipend, and unlimited access to a local yoga studio. Art produced through the program will be shared with the community through public readings and art exhibitions.
