Human Nature Dance Theatre is a collaborative dance performance group. The group creates original works of an interdisciplinary nature, which explore human potential and our relationship with the natural world.

Collaboration in art is like living in the wild. If you come across a wild animal in the free, you do not just walk up to it and say hello and slap it on the back like an old friend. You stop, stay still and witness with held breath. Approach Human Nature Dance Theater in the same way, for the wildness of these passions do not come easily and it's beauty can slip away in a heart beat.

Human Nature Dance Theatre was formed in 1994 by long-time collaborators Delisa Myles, Jayne Lee and Paul Moore and is often joined by other artists such as Francis Martineau, Syzygy Butoh, Amelia Burns, Mary Kelly, Nathan Montgomery and Bob Webb. HNDT performs regularly in northern Arizona and continue to play with the ongoing experiment of group collaboration. HNDT is a non-profit organization funded by Arizona Commission on the Arts, the City of Flagstaff and Flagstaff Cultural Partners. In 2008 Human Nature received the Otto Rene Castillo Award for Political Theatre.

"Great art takes work. Not just on the part of the artist, though.  Every work of art has an audience. When the artist allows the audience to find its own experiences and its own heart in the art presented, when we see ourselves reflected, art becomes transformative." —John Tannous on Human Nature Dance Theater
