Boston-based Peter DiMuro/Public Displays of Motion (PDM) creates dance and dance/theatre, translating the humane within everyday lives into extraordinary studies of the human condition. Driven by collaborative models, the company brings together a sum of ages, races, queer and disabilities communities to create diverse subject matter and metaphor to their works on site, on stage, on screens. Through creative practice and products, the company is an agent for advocacy and creativity literacy.
The company of dancer/collaborators is adept in multiple movement and performance techniques and spans an age-range of five decades. Guest collaborators are often engaged and have included professional dancers with disabilities, members of the LGBTQ+ and immigrant communities, creating a rare communicative power in performance. Performances can be grand spectacles on-site, miniature, intimate dances on tabletops, or more traditional performances on stages. PDM has been supported in residencies at the The Yard/Martha’s Vineyard, Vermont Performance Lab, Boston Dance Alliance, Villa Victoria Cultural Center/Boston (through support from New England Foundation for the Arts’ Creative City grant), The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and The Dance Complex, Cambridge, MA, where Peter is the Executive Artistic Director. Recent performances have included the company’s debut at Jacob’s Pillow in 2018, and at Boston’s famed Hatch Shell, among others.
