Rynders and her collective premiered you & me Denver in April 2011 in her home in Denver, CO and recently toured with her company and performed you & me San Francisco, you & me Reno, and you & me Evergreen.  you & me Earthdance will incorporate new artists, and new site-specific performances allowing each guest the chance to experience and create a performance with one artist at a time. 

you & me Earthdance  questions all aspects of performance including where a performance can take place, who are the real performers, how does performance change when it is being witnessed, and is a performance really a performance if it is only happening for one person?  Some highlights of you & me Earthdance are the “one on one” performances, a performance created by one performer for only one guest at a time and the sit down, family- style dinner served as part of the performance.  The “one on one” performances invite the viewer to take an active role in the performance and offer each guest a unique and personalized experience.
