Movement in the Museum: An Interpretive Response to American Realism

January 25, 2024 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Kalamazoo holds the unique distinction of being home to one of the nation’s longest-standing small professional modern dance companies. Celebrating its 43rd year in 2023, Wellspring/Cori Terry & Dancers hails from a distinct lineage of pioneer modern dance companies. Since its founding in 1981, the organization has introduced thousands to the art of dance, enriched the Kalamazoo arts community through collaborations with professional artists, and become a platform for advancing postmodern dance choreography.

During this event, Wellspring company members will draw inspiration from the exhibition American Realism: Visions of America, 1900-1950 and present an improvised interpretive response, translating visual art into movement.
