Dance at the Gardner with Peter DiMuro

Peter DiMuro, Choreographer in Residence at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, is creating performance installations for a series of public “dancer-led tours” of the galleries at the Gardner (October 11-25, 2018), as well as a special performance in the museum’s Calderwood Hall for the October Third Thursday (October 18). Peter, along with his company, Public Displays of Motion, will be developing a chorus of Gardner and Boston community members dressed as/embodying Isabella. The choreography will include a range of quick movements in unison (think post-modern “Vogue-ing”) as well as utter stillness (think post-modern Butoh!). An ability to commit to the intention and repetition of movement is required. Video for home-study will be provided between rehearsals. Participation is open to all, regardless of gender or sexual identity, and movement/dance experience. All ages are welcome, with those under 15 required to have an adult partner in the chorus, or permission from the company.
