MVworks’ first two evening-length works, No Where and …within us.,were commissioned by Performance Space 122.

Nationally, company repertory has been set on students at Anderson University, Anderson, IN through their Guest Artist Program.

Flutter is a new evening-length piece created by Megan V. Sprenger / MVworks. Through the creation and presentation of Flutter, MVworks is exploring themes of individuality, vulnerability and compassion. Compositionally, Flutter places abstract movement next to, within, and following story-driven content. The interaction between these elements creates subtle plot lines that ebb and flow throughout the dance. Much of the movement for the work has been individually crafted for each performer based on their personality, preferences and habits.

Flutter is a collaborative project created by Megan V. Sprenger with performers Donna Cicchesi, Michael Ingle, Tara O’Con, Anna Adams Stark with additional movement vocabulary provided by Megan Madorin, Kendra Portier, Yarden Raz and Alli Ruszkowski. The production will include lighting design by Joe Levasseur, scenic design by Brad Kisicki, sound composition by Jason Sebastian and costumes by Naomi Luppescu.
