About the Company

RDT is a contemporary modern dance company founded by Smith College MFA alumni Rebecca Hite Teicheira, Stephanie Simpson, and Stephen Ursprung. The mission of RDT is to continuously challenge an audience’s perception of dance; whether it be by exploring the boundaries of one’s physicality, integrating various mediums of visual and dramatic arts, challenging preconceived notions of commercialized dance forms, or delving into the psychology of dance. We find work most exciting when our bodies become strange to us; when we can look at the human form in a different light and discover new qualities within our moving selves that have previously lain dormant. Currently, RDT is based in New York City and Boston and has performed in a variety of venues and festivals across the country including the MixMatch Dance Festival, Los Angeles, CA; Built on Stilts Festival, Martha’s Vineyard, MA; Triskelion Arts in Brooklyn, NY; New Britain Museum of American Art, New Britain, CT; Trinity Rep Theater, Providence, RI; the Dance Complex, Cambridge, MA; and Boston Center for the Arts, Boston, MA.
