Space/Time/Energy: The Physics of Dance



Presented by Dayton Contemporary Dance Company

Dayton Contemporary Dance Company beautifully merges the interplay between science and dance. Through a narrated performance, a conversation and audience interaction, DCDC dance artists will demonstrate the use of movement (space), when movement happens (time), and how movement happens (energy), while exploring the question “What happens when art and science collide?”

Available Dates: Oct 18, 20, 25; Nov 1, 3, 10, 15; Dec 6, 8; Jan 10, 12, 17, 19, 24, 26, 31; Feb 2, 7, 9, 14, 16, 21, 23, 28; Mar 2, 7, 9, 14, 16, 28, 30; Apr 4, 6. Some of these dates have changed from the original printed brochure.
