Mordine and Company, archiving and preserving the work of Shirley Mordine


raised by 11 people

$3,000 goal

Mordine & Company Dance Theater season 2021-2022 continues to archive and preserve 50+ Years of Shirley Mordine’s work.   With live performances paused in 2020 we started using this time to create The Mordine Legacy Project, preserving the Company's 50+ years of repertoire and Chicago based performance and presenting history.  We're sifting through programs and press clippings, digitizing DVD, VHS, reel-to-reel footage, and archiving decades of photographs and other documents.

The Mordine Legacy Project will ensure Shirley and the Company's decades of creative contribution and collaboration including choregraphy, music and production design and dancer alumnus performances are available for future students, dancers, and dance historians. 

Our Legacy Team:

Shirley Mordine, Director 

Phil Martini, Archivist Director

Laruen Warnecke, Archivist 

Danielle Gilmore, Dancer, Performance/Repertoire Preservationist

Partially supported by a grant from The Donnelley Foundation additional funding is welcome for the digitizing effort:
