W&M Physical Theatre was founded in 1994 (as Gdanski Teatr Tanca). Their shared interest is in fusing the dynamics of contemporary dance with the intensity of Polish physical theatre to create work of emotional depth and raw physicality. The work is characterized by a rough treatment of the shaping of the body, breath and voice, a patient layering of themes, and extreme shifts of physical energy. They have performed in Austria, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Italy, Sweden, and Estonia as well as in Canada.

The W&M Dance Projects is under the artistic leadership of Melissa Monteros and Wojciech Mochniej. It is a contemporary dance training center as well as physical theatre company and is currently auditioning dancers interested in participating in our new company program designed for young, developing dancers. The SURGE Company provides a challenging dance experience that inspires excellence while providing a focus on training, self-exploration and choreographic endeavors in a dance company setting. Each dancer will be provided with personal direction, guidance, and encouragement from the Artistic Director, Artistic Associate, choreographers, and rehearsal directors. Associated with the SURGE Company is the Apprenticeship/Mentorship Program, which includes dancers from W&M Physical Theatre II (launched in Sept 2009). Under guidance, the SURGE Company members will train, create, and learn choreography with professional and emerging choreographers, theatre artists, designers and technicians. Performance and informal showings will provide opportunities to work alongside some of Calgary’s leading dance professionals to help round out a young dancer’s training and arts awareness.
