the response. provides accessible and inclusive opportunities for the general public to experience the company's act of dance-making in a variety of ways. In addition to formal presentations, the response. offers free open studio showings and rehearsals, community workshops, studio talkbacks, and apprenticeships. These activities are aligned with the creation and production of the company's pieces, and allow the community to see the inside of how these performances are made.

You can also read more about the company's creative process via their blog, The Arsenal Project.
