Dance performances

The New Movement at Mount Sequoyah dance performances are scheduled for May 29 and 30

A dance troupe that ran an artist residency in Fayetteville this summer will perform on Mount Sequoyah this weekend.

The group, called BODYSONNET, has teamed up with local composer Amos Cochran for a new cross-disciplinary performance titled New Movement at Mount Sequoyah to be held at Vesper Point on the Mount Sequoyah campus at 7:30 p.m. May 29-30.

From the performance description:

During the residency, the artists created I woke up on Skyline Drive, an evening-long interdisciplinary work developed through the personal stories of people whose lives have been shaped by Mount Sequoyah and the Ozarks. This work invites performers and viewers to reflect on collective memory, how we construct and recall memories, and how it can inform our relationship with ourselves, others and the ground we live on. .

New Movement at Mt. Sequoyah is presented by Mt. Sequoyah, with support from Trillium Arts.

This project is funded by Artists 360, a program of Mid-America Arts Alliance with support from the Walton Family Foundation.
