About the Artist: Pones
Pones provides artistic opportunities for community growth by creating engaging new ways for audiences to experience dance.
Founded in 2008, Pones has collaborated with over 200 artists and 80 arts and service organizations. The company creates site-specific performances through a fusion of movement and dance with other art forms. Pones’ accessible and participatory performances have been seen in over 90 Greater Cincinnati locations, as well as Indianapolis, and Chicago. Ongoing programs are available year round for artists and art groups, schools, and businesses.
Pones performers use their bodies to speak their minds. The collective uses its signature ‘pedestrian-inspired’ movement to spark collaboration, connection, and community. Pones believes that art creates powerful change.
This performance is made possible through support from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation and by American Rescue Plan funds from the City of Cincinnati, administered through ArtsWave.
