Venue: Theatre Building Courtyard
Start Time: 7:30pm

Exploring our reliance on digital media through this unprecedented era, Moving Beyond the Box tells the story of the stages of the pandemic through dance.

In March 2020, when we were all quarantined at home, director/choreographer and TFTV faculty member Christie Kerr looked for new ways to connect and continue to make art. She reached out to 14 dancers from across the U.S. and sent them choreography to learn via an instructional video. The dancers, both professionals and Acting/Musical Theatre students, recorded themselves in their various locations and sent the resulting videos back to Christie. The dance videos were then edited together with snippets of media stories and sound in a cohesive virtual dance piece that unites the far-flung company of dancers in one digital space.

A triumph of dance and togetherness in an era of isolation, Moving Beyond the Box is an experiential installation that highlights the positive aspects of a technology-dependent era.

Moving Beyond the Box will screen in the Theatre Building Courtyard on campus at the University of Arizona via a large-scale projection installation on Jan. 28-29. The screening will start at 7:30p and play on loop for an hour.

This project has been made possible by donors to the College of Fine Arts Fund for Excellence.
