nonoDance company

Is a performance collective investigating the realms and boundaries of dance, theater and improvisation, inspired by Somatic disciplines. Exploring authenticity in performance and flirting with the collective unconscious their work elicits a shared experiential field with the audience, offering somatic resonance and rich imagined multidimensional narratives.

Rosemary Hannon and Vitali Kononov began an ongoing dance partnership teaching and performing at the American Dance Festival in NC 2004. They formed nonoDance company in 2007, and since then worked together at various festivals and venues in Bay Area and U.S.  Since January 2009 they started offering ongoing weekly classes in Berkeley teaching contact improvisation fundamentals. After 2012 nonoDance formation entered the phase of fractalization and have been re-organized into the nonoDance Project with emphasis on collaborative research.
