For the past 40 years I have created multidisciplinary works for stage, site-specific architectural and environment locations, and films that, I hope, forwarded and expanded artistic definitions of dance. This journey has made it possible to create a living archive for the public from a personal perspective. My hope is that the Maida Withers Dance Construction Company archive will stimulate memories while honoring all those who contributed to make the work possible. How this archives calls into question the future is yet to be seen.
