Workshops will be held at Andrus Field, in the center of Wesleyan's campus.

Thursday, August 28, 5:30 – 7:30 pm
The performance will be on Friday at 7:30.
The Dance Exchange's previous projects in Middletown have been extremely successful. In early 2006, they presented the world premiere of Ferocious Beauty: Genome, at Wesleyan, which was a critically acclaimed collaboration between molecular geneticists and dancers. Last spring the Dance Exchange participated in the Feet to the Fire Festival in Veteran's Park, which brought together music, arts, a farmer's market, dancers and cows to bring attention to the issue of global climate change.
This event is also part of the Feet to the Fire project.
