DANCEBUMS is Margaret Johnson, Kara Motta, Eben Kowler, Maggie Zepp and Karen McMenamy.
Margaret Johnson, Kara Motta, Eben Kowler, Maggie Zepp, and Karen McMenamy met in the University of Minnesota’s dance department. Tightly bonded by friendship, they lived together in a brick house in NE Minneapolis, MN. During their two-year residency in this home, they produced a trio of original dance theater performances in their single-car garage.
DaNCEBUMS is a new name for a long-standing partnership. Since 2013, DaNCEBUMS have been performing thoughtful and provocative dance work in the Twin Cities. Their collaboration is based on mutual love and respect for each other, systems of support, and togetherness.
DaNCEBUMS have presented their work at Public Functionary, Bryant Lake Bowl, Minneapolis Theater Garage, Crowles Center for Dance, The Southern Theater, Kitty Cat Klub, Red Eye Theater, and on broadcast live on CTV15 from the Lee & Rose Coliseum.
