This installment of the Schwarzman Center signature series Dancing About Architecture grew out of a collaboration with Yale Theater and Performance Studies Lecturer Iréne Hultman and was informed by Hultman's Yale College course, Moving Sites and Structures. An objective of the course—and this event—is to explore the intersection of forms, and to open dialogues between them…where dance, performance, and architecture, in communication expand the experiences of bodies in space. 

 

"Making Space" begins with a guided walking tour of Yale University locations within one mile of the Schwarzman Center, each featuring its own site-specific performance by students representing a wide range of academic disciplines and movement experiences. Inspired by the works of dance pioneers such as Merce Cunningham, and Trisha Brown, the performances focus on relation, relatability, and the dependence of architecture on human emotion. 

The event culminates in a conversation (in The Dome!) with artist Jonathan Gonzaléz, choreographer Cristina Caprioli, and Yale Center for Collaborative Arts and Media Program Director and Senior Lecturer in Theater and Performance Studies  Matthew Suttor,  moderated by Director of the Center for the Arts at Wesleyan University Joshua Lubin-Levy .
