Once Vacant: Bodies in motion...still
The University of Kentucky Department of Theatre and Dance presents Once Vacant: Bodies in motion…still. The dancers will perform in the Orange parking lot on UK's campus, while the audience will maintain social distance surrounding the performers in their cars. The practice of occupying vacant spaces is a tool that many dancers and dance companies are accessing globally to continue to create, perform, and advance the field of dance during the pandemic. As dancers and choreographers, we continue to seek motion as a means of enlivening a world that has become motionless. Once Vacant reimagines a public space while illuminating the vital role that dance can play in advancing political, social and cultural discussions. Choreographers Susie Thiel, Stephanie Harris and Theresa Bautista's dance works center around the questions, what does the body mean in spaces and places and how can entropy lead to liberation?
All patrons will enter the lot from University Drive and exit onto Alumni Drive.
Please arrive 10-15 minutes before performance start time to be ushered to your parking space.
Rain Date: October 18th
