POV-The Ford Building Project March 11 – March 21, 2010

POV-The Ford Building Project

galleryHOMELAND is proud to present POV and The Ford Building Project.

POV has created a site specific contemporary dance piece inspired by the Historic Ford Building. Since September of last year the troupe has been rehearsing in the building 3 days a week. We’re fairly confident that you’ve never seen anything quite like it…..

The Ford Building Project will be performed throughout the ground floor of the building, with nine dancers gracefully guiding their audience from one end of the building to the other. POV Dance will transform the space into a moving landscape of architecture, bodies, light and sound. Audience members will be offered intimate and unexpected perspectives on dancers as they glide up and down stairwells, propel off walls and hang from windows and rails. Viewers will discover something new around every corner as they are led through this unique building’s cavernous hallways.
