You Will Know When You Are There: A Journey in Art and Modern Dance
Deep Ellum’s Muscle Memory Dance Theatre and the Ghost Town Arts Collective Collaborate on Unique Multi-Media EventDallas, Texas. October 10, 2011 – You Will Know When You Are There is an art and dance collaboration between the Ghost Town Arts Collective and Muscle Memory Dance Theatre taking place at LIFE in Deep Ellum. While taking direction and drawing inspiration from each other, these two groups have worked together to merge visual arts and dance. The collaboration is a large scale art and dance event: part gallery show, part dance performance, part art installation.The subject of this event is transformation and myth: processes that twist and turn, taking us somewhere … a place that is unknown until arrival. You will know when you are there.The event kicks off with a art exhibition in the gallery at LIFE in Deep Ellum to open on October 10th. There will be an opening reception on Saturday, October 15 from 6 – 9 pm. The reception is free and open to the public.
The journey continues through the fall as the Ghost Town artists build an installation that is companion to the dance performance choreographed by Muscle Memory Dance Theatre. Taking cues from one another, the installation will shape the movement, and the movement will shape the installation.
The project will culminate in an evening length dance performance on November 4th and 5th at LIFE in Deep Ellum. Each evening will begin at 7 pm with a reception in the gallery. Once the doors to the performance space open, the audience will embark upon their own journey through the art installation and into the dance performance. The dance performance will begin at 8 pm. Tickets are $15 general admission, $10 students/seniors.
Muscle Memory and the Ghost Town are proud to invite you to this exciting and unique multi-media event.
