Flyover Dance Collective presents “Art Off the Walls: Dance in the Museum,” a year-long series that employs site-specific choreography to create meaningful dialogue with artwork in museum spaces in Northwest Arkansas. Flyover Dance Collective offers an embodied response to Baez’s artwork by exploring water as a symbol of interconnection, rite of passage, and cultural collision. The dance performance is an immersive experience within the exhibition space that includes six dancers from Flyover Dance Collective, a local community ensemble, and a live opera singer.Ultimately, “Art Off the Walls” performances provide increased exposure to contemporary dance outside of the traditional proscenium stage.
This project is generously funded by Mid-America Arts Alliance, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the state arts agencies of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas. Flyover Dance Collective is part of NWA Movement Hub, a fiscally sponsored organization of CACHE.
