Murphy/Smith Dance Collective [MSDC], founded in Pittsburgh roots, aims to engage audiences through contemporary dance work inspired by the human experience.  With a strong focus on collaboration, MSDC strives to cultivate local up-and-coming talent, with a focus on developing work for both traditional and non-traditional performance spaces. Through honest exploration of the human body, MSDC creates work with passionate fervor, driven by athletic phrasing, accessible through gestural simplicity.
