Myra Bazell and Madison Cario co-direct Scrap and bring with them over a decade of success in creating contemporary multi-media dance based theater locally, nationally and abroad.

Scrap Performance Group transforms dance from art to inquiry creating potent dance-theatre experiences that provoke audiences to question. Integrating light, sound, video and the environment with blazing physicality and edgy choreography, Scrap moves dance into a new vigorous genre. Scrap’s vision is of a community that is unafraid to address issues of importance, and one in which artists and art are a vital component of a civic dialogue. Scrap attains that vision by making work through a collaborative process that engages artists and audiences in the act of creation, informing and transforming Scrap’s work through that process of feedback and dialogue. Scrap’s genuine desire is to create work that is radically exquisite, psychologically intricate, and emotionally raw.
