Echoes: From Here

About 300 visitors came to the Nasher Museum on June 22 to experience "Echoes: From Here," a multidisciplinary collaboration between visual artist John Felix Arnold, MacArthur fellow Michelle Dorrance and Byron Tittle of Dorrance Dance tap company. Commissioned by Duke Arts and co-presented by American Dance Festival and the Nasher Museum, Echoes: From Here was a 30-minute dance performance that resulted in the creation of a new work of visual art: a 6-by-8-foot “stage” created by Arnold from reclaimed wood sourced from both the Triangle and New York City. The project was also supported by Cassilhaus, where Arnold is in residence this summer. Video (above) by Bill Snead. Photos (below) by J Caldwell.
