Moving Dialogs

Join us at The Field Museum for the third installment of Moving Dialogs: Culture in Motion with the Indo-American Heritage Museum and Synapse Arts!  Attendees will experience a live performance taking place in front of the museum’s Maori Meeting House, with choreography by dancers using their limbs as knitting needles to create arm-knitted textiles. Damon’s textile dances technique reimagines knitting and crochet as kinetic art forms that create concrete traces of the body’s motion, exploring how movement and needlecraft can influence each other. For this event, Damon and the Synapse Arts dancers use historical and contemporary textiles from the Indo-American Heritage Museum as a source for the movement and patterns, creating a new context for interpretation and space for cultural dialogue.

Tue, June 5, 2018, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
