Update Because our doors are currently closed, we used the latest Special Collections blog post to share “Polly Nulty: A Strong and Impressive Style” and “Lorette Sousie: Developing the Love of Dance” from the exhibit. Read the post here.
The current exhibit in Silver Special Collections, "Work of Art: Dancing Together in Vermont," examines the process involved in creating diverse dance communities, from groups of girls and boys in clever costumes tap dancing across school stages to performers exploring familiar landscapes in new ways. Using photographs, documents and artifacts, the exhibit looks at two long-running Burlington dance studios led by Polly Nulty and Lorette Sousie, the stage performances and “eco-choreography” of l. tarin chaplin, and two site-specific projects from Cradle to Grave Arts under the artistic direction of Hannah Dennison. Each provided opportunities for community members of all ages and skill levels to work together to learn and to stage performances that delighted and challenged participants and audiences.
