Our little company that could started as Cornerspoon. We were all about bringing dance to the masses via guerilla style, site-specifc performances using non traditional spaces as our stage. To reach audiences that may not have access to the theatre. This gave us the self subscribed tagline "movement graffiti". We didn't like conforming and we wanted to go against the grain. We wanted to show people how dance is part of every day life. Our greatest hit was domod set in and on a rotating box, The Phalanstry Module. Cornerspoon now lives on as Arsenal Movement dance project.
