Passive Aggressive Novelty Company (PANoCo) creates performances that weave elements of dance, music, theatre, and video into meticulous, multi-sensory experiences. The work asks audiences to take nothing for granted, exploring physical and temporal structures that challenge both perception and expectation.
In addition to sharing original performances, PANoCo is also actively involved in helping others explore the process of creation, leading workshops and residencies with students of all ages and backgrounds. Like the work itself, the goal is to challenge participants’ expectations of what a performance can be, with a focus on discovering unique connections between form and content.
Andy Russ (artistic director) is an interdisciplinary artist, educator, and active generalist, based in Providence, RI.
