Danstallations 2015 / all facilities / Saturday, May 2 / 1 - 3:30 p.m.
The collaboration will culminate in a combined event that will begin at Mint Museum Uptown, move to the Bechtler Museum, and end at the Gantt Center.
Visitors will observe original pieces by Kinetic Works dancers, and then visit each partner museum to hunt for the works of art that served as inspiration. Kinetic Works dancers will perform three short, original pieces inspired by a work of art at the Mint, the Bechtler, and the Gantt. Following the performance, dancers and visitors will engage in a brief discussion, and armed with helpful hints, will visit each museum to find the inspirational work. A wrap-up discussion at the Gantt will link the visual choreography and the art collections. Visitors are welcome to continue their exploration of all three institutions at their leisure at the close of the event.
