House of Murals

A premier new work developed through a 7-week international artist-in-residency with Brazilian Performance Artist Christiane Matallo in collaboration with Corinne Karon and Dr. Leslie Elkins. Previews November 30 at 8PM, December 1-2 and 8-9 at 8PM, and December 3 & 10 at 2PM. Student Matinée on December 7, 2017 at 10AM.

Playing with the intersections of Tap Dance infused with Samba rhythms, Improvisation, Modern Dance, and Theatre this original work of art will connect people and communities through movement, rhythm, voice, and storytelling. Engaging in qualitative research and intensive workshops, this international collaboration will ponder “migration – the movement of people from one place to another with the intentions of settling” – the literal and figurative search for home and how through rhythms of bodies and voices we truly exercise freedom – freedom to move and groove and transcend distance and difference.
