Walter Dundervill: ARENA
NOTE: Tonight is sold out for online sales. There will be opportunities to buy a ticket at the door, at the discretion of house management. The earlier you arrive during the performance, the better the chances are that you'll be able to get in. Box office and doors will open at 6 pm (no earlier).
PLEASE ALSO NOTE: This is a performance installation, without a traditional seating area, and although there will be some seats available, purchasing a ticket does not necessarily guarantee a seat, just entry.
Bessie-winner Walter Dundervill brings ARENA back to JACK, an installation performance that created a buzz when it premiered at JACK in July 2014. Over the course of each three-hour installation, Dundervill and his dancers utilize costumes, fabrics, and various everyday materials to build a landscape continually in flux.
