MMP's creations are known for giving the audience an immersive, participatory experience. Significant works to date include Xdance (2002) at the Canada Dance Festival, iDUB: an interactive digital urban ballet (2004-2006) at the Dance Centre, The Spell Remains (2005) &  Ri’zilyent (2007), at The Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, TWiSTED (2009), at The Dance Centre,  Heat the Streets (2010), with the Vancouver Cultural Olympiad, TWiSTED:SOLO (2011) at Museum of Anthropology, and Speaking in Ligeti (2013) at The Dance Centre.

For 2014, MMP will be working towards a residency on Saltspring Island with both SPEAKING in LIGETI and a new work SONATA, both featuring the music of Gyorgy Ligeti performed live onstage by the acclaimed Microcosmos Quartet. The company's goal is to build a tour for this evening of poweful music and dance.

About TOPS
In 2009, MMP presented TWiSTED at the Dance Centre, a touching, multi-media dance work created and performed by Martha Carter recounting her transformational story of living with a twisted spine while pursuing a career in dance. Since then, MMP has directed a program called the Twisted Outreach Project for Backcare and Scoliosis, offering an artistic approach to classes, workshops, events, community-building and resources around the subject of back health for interested public. And since a minimum 10% of the population has some kind of imbalance in their spine, this makes for a lot of people!
