Event Description:

The Butler University Chamber Dance Ensemble explores the movement vocabulary of bodies at work, rest, and play as they perform in public places downtown, responding to and interacting with viewers and passersby.

The body @Work is focused and task oriented, the body @Play is inventive and joyful, and the body @Rest is peaceful and still.  The body speaks through movement. The people all around us are constantly expressing themselves by the way they walk, sit, stand, and relax. How we react to each other is also expressed through our own personal movement vocabulary, we reveal our emotions entirely by the way we move and sometimes we communicate by not moving at all. 

Presented by Butler University Jordan College of Fine Arts, Dept. of Dance. Questions? Call 317-940-0346 or email lattaway@butler.edu.

This event occurs on Friday, November 4th and Saturday, November 5th.
