Each year, choreographers and dancers Hanna Satterlee, Nicole Dagesse and Jessie Owens meet during the spring and summer months to collaborate and perform innovative dance performances for Vermont audiences. Each year the collective seeks to create an abstract mythical story that uncovers the mystery and the shared experience of being a human. Each shared showcase of dance work combines the repertoire of the three choreographers, collaging the combination into a unique performance.

About Hanna Satterlee
Hanna Satterlee creates performance experiences and conceptual artworks through dance. As a choreographer of works for stage, site and film, Hanna explores the concept of landscape in a nostalgic way, establishing a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. After ten years of international travel and dance exploration, in May 2017 Hanna founded the Vermont Dance Alliance (! Hanna now serves as the Executive Director, both managing a statewide network of dance artists, partners and patrons, as well as producing and curating high-quality dance events and opportunities for the public. Hanna holds degrees and certifications in dance therapy, psychology, performance, choreography, vinyassa/yin/restorative yoga, non-profit management and arts integration. Hanna shares these passions as an intergenerational educator, interdisciplinary performer and collaborator, experimental curator and event producer. Hanna is as passionate for the form of dance as she is in connecting people to it. Photo by Peggy Smith.

About Jessie Owens

Later that year, she founded ERGO/movement, a performance project based in Burlington, VT, where she is interested in pushing the parameters and boundaries of dance, and seeks to create works that are accessible to both dancers and audiences. From 2002-2013, Jessie was involved as a performer, art director, and co-producer of the Spielpalast Cabaret. Jessie currently serves as the Vice President of the Vermont Dance Alliance, a non-profit organization serving as a foundation for dancers and a public platform for dance in Vermont.
