EXIT12 is a contemporary dance company committed to creating and performing works of high cultural significance that inspire conversations about worldly differences and the lasting effects of violence and conflict on communities, families, and individuals. Through movement, we educate audiences about the reality of war, advocate diversity and mutual understanding through cultural exchange, and champion the humanity and dignity of all persons.
Roman Baca is a Marine Iraq War Veteran and the Artistic Director of Exit12 Dance Company. In 2007, Mr. Baca co-founded Exit12 Dance Company. Mr. Baca has choreographed several major works which communicate the experiences of people in conflict, and inspire visions of a better world. As a Teaching Artist, Mr. Baca has traveled to work in Erbil, Iraq and in NYC public schools teaching young adults how to express their experience through choreography and non-verbal expression. Mr. Baca has conducted Veteran/Civilian movement workshops that provide tools to aid veterans in the workplace, and to bridge the civilian-veteran divide.
