The Dance of da Vinci 2.0
"...inspired by one of the biggest thinkers in history" - Hartford Courant
We are rescheduling The Dance of da Vinci 2.0. My dancers have gone home for the time being. Rehearsing with these incredible dancers is life affirming. We move, work, create and play in order to bring The Dance of da Vinci 2.0 to the stage - to YOU.

A Bit of History...
In April 2018, Choreographer Sonia Plumb premiered The Dance of da Vinciat The Bushnell. Feeling unfinished, she spent another two years researching and re-working the choreography. After two trips to London to personally meet with the Curator of Prints and Drawings at Windsor Castle, viewing over 200 of Leonardo's original drawings and two presentations at Upward Hartford, Plumb is now ready to show the world Dance of da Vinci 2.0. Diving even deeper into The Notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci, Plumb has created a masterpiece of movement with projections, original music and top-notch dancers. Follow our story on social media as we prepare for the stage. Leonardo — humanist, polymath, artist, inventor, engineer, observer of nature and movement. 500 years after his death and he is still an icon.
