By Palm Beach Daily News,
Open Spaces, an interactive dance performance, is set to take place at 2 p.m. Sept. 30 at the Norton Museum of Art.
The second annual showcase, presented by the Natural Movers Foundation, will feature original works and repertoire by eight Palm Beach County-based dance artists. Works are inspired by specific artworks and spaces at the museum. Contemporary, ballet and hip-hop will be among the styles presented.
“We’re delighted to partner with the Norton Museum of Art and bring Open Spaces back this year,” foundation founder and CEO Ericka Squire said in a prepared statement. “Open Spaces shines a light on Palm Beach County dance artists and offers community members of all ages and perspectives an approachable way to experience dance.”
Guests will be led throughout the museum to see each performance up close. Dance films also will be shown. Afterward, guests can talk with the choreographers about the inspiration behind their works.
“Last year, Open Spaces was so exhilarating, and this year’s program promises even more exciting dance based on artworks in the Norton Museum,” said Glenn Tomlinson, the Norton's William Randolph Hearst Chief Officer of Learning and Community Engagement.
This year’s featured choreographers include Larry Albright; Clarence Brooks; Olivia Capasso, Kenny Fowler, Loud Live Productions; Branndi Lewis, Grounded Dance Co.; Sarah Claire Smith; Shanna Woods, Olujimi Dance Theatre; and Squire.
The museum is at 1450 S. Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach. The event is free for museum members; and is included with paid admission.
