Let’s use the movement of our bodies, wearable artwork, and our creativity to produce a show like no other! We'll take inspiration from the galleries and emulate the postures of sculptures, construct costumes inspired by paintings, and sway like mobiles. We'll learn moves from different dance and meditation practices, and even create our own beats using percussion instruments.
