MM2 Modern Dance Company will present a preview of its newest work — “Conversations: a dialog in movement” — at 7 p.m. Thursday at the James A. Michener Art Museum in Doylestown.

The performance, like a conversation, is interactive, spontaneous, personal and intimate.

“Dance allows us to express who we are within the context of movement, and thus is the simplest form of communication,” says MM2 artistic director Steven Weisz. “It is a conversation between body, breath and beat. Such conversations are at our very core.”

“With this new work, MM2 company members, dancers and choreographers have created their own dialogue that reflects the ebb and flow of our daily lives,” says Zoriana Siokalo, the Michener’s director of programs.

The preview of “Conversations” is being offered after a successful tour in Canada under a grant from the WHW Foundation. The final production will premiere at the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe in September.

MM2 Modern Dance Company, under Weisz’s direction, has established itself as an incubator, providing support, space and opportunities for new emerging dance artists who wish to explore the choreographic process, and to cultivate and introduce new work to new audiences.

MM2 dancers are committed to creating and performing a new body of work each year, fostering Philadelphia’s growing modern and contemporary dance audience. They also are committed to educating, advocating, supporting and promoting artistic vitality in the region.

This season’s dancers/choreographers are Jessica Bryan, Katelyn Capato, Jenna Faye Eugenides, Heather Fleischman, Angela Frezzo, Kaylee Goodwin, Jennifer Laucella, Brianne Scott and Matthew Varvar.

Tickets to the performance: free with paid admission to the museum.

The venue is at 138 S. Pine St.
