Mission Statement 	 As a performing company A-WOL seeks to liberate audiences from traditional ideas of what it means to dance.  Mingling the worlds of dance and aerial, they ignite a wonder and curiosity for what can happen when a human body takes flight.  The physicality of their movement both on the floor and in the air, conveys striking fearlessness and unmistakable rigor.  Through challenging the scope of human capability, A-WOL will give you something to dream for. ___	 	 Believing that art should be accessible to everyone, A-WOL is not afraid to pluck their work from behind the theatre curtain, and pursue their audiences by popping up in a variety of unexpected locations.  They’ve been seen hanging from the trees in the middle of the forest to dangling from the ceilings of Portland’s trendiest night clubs.  Hip yet sophisticated, A-WOL has a versatility of style that appeals to anyone. ___ 	 A-WOL was created in 2003 as a “Collective.”  The four co-founders’ intention was to form a group that could operate efficiently by using the different strengths and skills of all company members, both on and off stage.  Avoiding the cookie cutter feel, A-WOL consists of strong dancers each with a unique style or specialty, which gives the company’s repertory an ever-evolving texture.  Off stage, each member has a specific responsibility, from costuming to rigging equipment to being an educator in the community.
