During the Winter Art Party Extravaganza!! on January 27th at 7pm, The Dodd Galleries is premiering a new dance performance by CADEN:CE (Contemporary African Dance Ensemble : New Conscious Explorations). The performance piece was choreographed in response to Michi Meko's exhibition One Last Smile Before the Undertow which will also be opening that evening. The work is an exploration of a ritual process of preparing to journey; the movers are always made aware of their temporary place in the world.
On February 1, the performance For You will bring together music, sound, video, and installation art in an original composition in the atrium of the Lamar Dodd School of Art. Starting from 6 pm, groups of visitors will be hosted in 20-minute sequences during the 2-hour cyclical performance. For You takes participants on a symbolic journey involving a 16-foot boat, a wooden pavilion, and a room of dancing shadows and projections that deals thematically with the idea of offering and receiving.
