The Department of Dance at the Ohio State University presents “tethering: iteration 1,” a full moon walking tour of dance works that engages with how we share performance in a Covid world. Guiding the audience through and around the works, the 2021 MFA graduate students welcome you to witness pockets of dance in Nature. KJ Dye and her dancers will cultivate your guided experience around the lake at the Chadwick Arboretum North. Along your journey you will find Yildiz Guventurk, floating between past and future on the lake, Tara Lee Burns uniting Virtual Reality and Nature, and Davianna Green re-experiencing memories of joy, forgiveness, and vulnerability. On the second half of your tour you will encounter an introduction to Farb and Var in Emily Craver’s vintage futurescape, an opportunity to rest and witness a conversation with Nature presented by Laura Neese and her dancers, and view two dancers inhabiting projected film by Andi Pei. In this iteration we explore safe interaction through a cultivated experience with community, reflection, and calm in hopes of leaving you with questions, but also moments of hope.
