Information [From press release]
Back by popular demand, Dance NOW! Miami returns to the Bass Museum of Art for the fourth year of The EKPHRASIS Project, presenting poignant and edgy work based on the current exhibitions. The migrating, site-specific event is a unique dance & art experience conceived and created by DNM Directors Hannah Baumgarten and Diego Salterini not only resonating with the art, but also presenting dance in unlikely locations, reflecting the architecture of the museum. This year’s Ekphrasis project will focus on the video exhibition of Eve Sussman, Rape of the Sabine Women, a contemporary reinterpretation of the eponyous Roman Legend. Salterini and Baumgarten will weave live dance throught the upstairs gallery drawing from and reflecting this brilliant 1960’s reinactment of the ancient tale.
