What: Destination Dance will open the new "Artown on the Quad" series, July 5, 2022! As such, we are excited to exclusively feature the work of UNR Dance Alumni. Site-specific dance is work that is created in response to a particular place or site, inspired by its architecture, design, history, or current use. The choreographers have been commissioned to create unique performances, taking traditional and contemporary dance off of the stage and into new environments.
Where: Featuring sites on and around the historic "Quad" on the University of Nevada, Reno campus, this walking-distance dance tour will allow audience members to engage with dance in a whole new way and view the campus in a new and invigorating light. Destination Dance will celebrate our city’s unique sense of place through movement. Performances will feature Morrill Hall, Mackay Science, Honor Court, Frandsen Humanities, and the Pennington Student Achievement Center.
