EchoLocation: A Mobile Tour
The Department of Theatre and Dance at the University of Kentucky invites the community to experience a site-specific dance performance, EchoLocation: The Mobile Tour. Due to Covid-19, the dance program aims to present a diverse performance opportunity for our students, faculty and community. Most recently, the focus is on “site-specific performances” in which the venue is intrinsic to the work. The locations will be easily accessible through the program and map which can be found on a phone or tablet, “mobile.” And the audience will move from location to location, “tour.”
The performance consists of choreography by UK students and faculty on the University of Kentucky campus and the Arboretum, State Botanical Garden of Kentucky. The first part of the performance takes place on the UK campus, after which attendees are recommended to drive to the UK Arboretum for the second half of the program. The locations range from a parking garage to a rose garden, and the choreography explores a variety of themes from Covid-19, politics, culture, environment and simply movement for movement’s sake.
After purchasing a ticket online, the schedule and more information will be available. During the performance, the audience will move together from one location to the next, beginning at the Singletary Center for the Arts and ending at the UK Arboretum.
All patrons are asked to follow CDC guidelines during this event and golf carts will be available for those who require assistance traveling from location to location. Please contact the Department of Theatre and Dance at email@example.com or 859.257.3297 if you require mobility assistance.
In the event of inclement weather, the Rain Date is Friday April 16 at 5:00pm. If the performance will be delayed due to weather, all ticketholders will be contacted by email.
