Every new dance event The Department of Theatre and Dance creates is an exciting and gratifying innovative journey. We are proud to partner with the Arboretum State Botanical Garden of Kentucky to produce a site-specific performance that highlights the Arboretum landscapes and Kentucky's native ecosystems. Materialized: in the Arboretum is a site-specific concert, in which the venue is intrinsic to the work. There are eight student choreographed dances and one faculty work. Among the incredible sites at The Arboretum State Botanical Garden of Kentucky, dances will be performed in the Shawnee Hills, Horticulture Gardens and Displays and in front of the Visitor Center. The audience will move from location to location. Topics include Climate Change, Greek Mythology, the environment, gratitude for the land and ecosystems. It is incredible to share our dances with communities in new spaces and present choreography based on location.
