Forward Motion Theater is a New York City-based dance-theater-media company founded in 1995 by choreographer Eric Dunlap and media artist Holly Daggers. Their mission is to explore movement and technology through original works combining physical performance and digital media.
Called "stunningly inventive" by Jennifer Dunning in The New York Times, this successful collaboration spawned full-length dance theater productions. Performances have also spilled out of the black box of dance theater into a spectrum of other media and venues, site-specific installations and events.
A non-profit arts organization with 501(c)3 status, FMT fosters collaboration and experimentation between artists by curating events, providing tech support and media services, and fiscal sponsorship. Current goals are to develop works and new venues for live theater and interdisciplinary performance including the EyeWash live-mix VJ series and FMT Studio Sessions where performance can be developed intimately with media art.
