B. Dunn Movement/Dance and Theatre Company is a performance art collective based in Los Angeles, California. Our mission is to provide in-depth creative expression through diverse art forms. BDMDTC encourages individuals to create art that encompases critical thinking and an awareness of the multilayered themes within a global community. We examine issues of the human experience through collaborative art making in dance, theatre, music, writing and spoken word.
The Histories of diverse communities and the navigational narrative of the sometimes political risk of personal evolution and identity are deeply important to us. BDMDTC seeks to facilitate work that investigates the universal spirit of our humanity, with interest in creating a shared authentic-visceral experience within all bodies of work.
