Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts Park
Dance on Mars
This performance is related motion, space, and body with only one principle that unexpected and exciting things can happen when we connect and collaborate.
Two musicians, one choreographer, and two performing-arts-interested individuals came together to explore the idea of Kinesphere, an icosahedron representing the natural boundaries of our bodily space in which motion happens.
This performance will tour around Jordan in unexpected locations, aiming to reach audiences who might not come to the theatre.
