Allard Van Hoorn will collaborate with Heather Britt Dance Collective to create the next Urban Songlines project, which turns physical sites into uncanny instruments. At 2 pm on May 3rd, dancers will perform Zaha Hadid’s urban carpet in the CAC lobby while Van Hoorn collects the sounds the building makes in response to the movement. The second act features the same or slightly altered movement to the score that has just been created moments earlier.
Another performance at 2 pm on May 3 will feature MamLuft& Co Dance.
