Founded by artist/director Douglas Rosenberg in 1991, the group's purpose is to create works bridging numerous disciplines including dance, performance and the visual and media arts.

The Dziga Vertov Performance Group

takes its name from the Russian filmmaker of the early 1900's. DVPG's fundamental mission is to create new and challenging works of art based in the language of performance, dance and media that often combines voice, text, video and projected images. The work of DVPG is concerned with both content and form. The purpose of the work is to engage the audience, other artists and community groups in a dialogue that reaches beyond the usual performer/spectator relationship. In order to do this, we have set out to create a hybrid form of performance that is intended to both engage and challenge, using concepts and images that speak to contemporary and historical issues of human existence. Farmwork is an example of the innovative creation process developed by Douglas Rosenberg and DVPG.
