Making a Mess
April 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
One event on May 1, 2022 at 2:00 pm
Making a Mess is a dance installation that subverts common expectations around concert dance in order to question the systems “fine art” exists within. The dancers will work with physical materials that are often not allowed in traditional dance spaces, such as paint, fruit, and mud, as well as subject material that is often viewed as taboo in the dance world and its institutions. Many of these subject matters such as queerness, mental illness, and sensuality are permissible in other art areas like television and visual art but have been barred from the concert dance world as a further enforcement of elitism. Finally, Making A Mess will pose questions around the social systems concert dance exists within including class, race, and gender identity. Get ready to experience something like you’ve never seen before, and come join us in Making a Mess!
