Doolittle’s work focuses on dance as/in social change. Her participatory theatre and dance projects include intergenerational performance with Age Exchange, London UK, health promotion in rural Malawi, and collaborations with Blackfoot students, refugees, immigrants, and people experiencing developmental disability. In film, she has documented mixed-ability dance education as community development, and explored local multi-ethnic and indigenous history as embodied in dance. She has presented and published internationally on community-engaged performance, Canadian dance and multiculturalism, mixed-ability, and indigenous dance. As choreographer and director, her original productions appeared in Calgary, Edmonton, Rome, and in London UK, and on university stages. For twelve years, she curated and produced an international touring performance, film and outreach event series: Now Showing Live Arts. Doolittle is Professor Emeritus, Drama, University of Lethbridge.
