Project Home is a dance production company established by Christopher Martin and Larkin Poynton. Our founders are internationally recognized choreographers and teachers who share a common goal: to produce meaningful and innovative work that transcends beyond the stage.
Since its inception in 2015, Project Home has committed to connecting artists from different communities. Our contributors are comprised of dancers, videographers, photographers, lighting artists, directors, musicians, and more. Project Home has performed for audiences from all around the world, having toured in the US, Spain, Singapore, Japan, Germany, Italy, Russia, Australia, England, and China.
As we move forward, we hope to continue pushing the boundaries of dance, and to bring people together to appreciate our art.
