Performance Lab @ Chihuly Nights » Expanding Glass, Expanding Body by Monica Thomas
Expanding Glass, Expanding Body by choreographer Monica Thomas will explore our interactions with glass arts, specially timed with the current exhibition Chihuly: In the Forest. Thomas will present a dance-theater exploration of site-specific space and sculptural materials, featuring Chicago-based professional dancers and Northwest Arkansas community performers. Monica and performers will explore Chihuly’s forms, responding to sculpture shapes, movement, and interaction with light through physical vignettes. Thomas, originally from Fayetteville, Arkansas, is a dancer, actor, choreographer, and filmmaker. She performed as a company member with Winifred Haun and Dancers, Mordine & Company, and Striding Lion Performance Group. Her dance film works have appeared in festivals nationally and internationally.
