Event Description

Four dance performances inspired by museum-wide installation to be presented in conjunction with AHA Festival of Progressive Arts.

Friday, Sep 13 at 6pm
Saturday, Sep 14 at 10:30am
Sunday, Sep 15 at 2 and 4pm

ARCOS Dance will present a new work created in response to SITE Santa Fe’s current installation by Enrique Martínez Celaya, The Pearl. This immersive performance allows the audience to explore the exhibit anew while taking their cues from dancers, who activate the open spaces surrounding the pieces and direct the audience on a path through the installation. Drawing from Celaya’s themes of home and memory, A Kinetic Encounter engages with existing movement ideas and motifs, reshaping them to the context of the installation’s physical layout and layering them with new choreography inspired by the evocative images and sounds of The Pearl.

The piece will run approximately 30 minutes from show start time. Viewers are encouraged to follow the movement of the dancers and feel free to return to previous rooms or walk through the entire exhibit again afterwards.

ARCOS is delighted to offer these four performances for free to the public in collaboration with SITE. SITE’s admission will be free to the public at these times, in conjunction with the AHA Festival
