A responsive collaboration between art, dance, and audience
Sunday, April 14, 2024
Artist Patricia Sannit and choreographer and dancer Nicole L. Olson have mutually created a dance and visual art event that expresses the power of community, its resilience strengthened by migration, shared histories, and cooperation.
Eternal Home features Olson in an energetic, elegiac, participatory dance performed amid a sculptural installation created by Sannit. As Olson performs, the art responds, and the audience will be invited to interact within the art/dance setting.
