DO is a solid dance theater company in Boston, in operation since 2007. We take pride in our focus on social justice oriented issues- and work from an anti-racist and decolonization framework. DO is unique in Boston. You will be working closely with the DO artists and company members- a wonderful opportunity to join the fight towards social justice through art-making.
