The rhythmic forms of dancers' bodies vibrate with the structural elements of the building--utilizing stairs, railings, ladders, hallways, alcoves, and rooftops. The performance unfolds amidst a sonic environment of music composed and performed live by the band Watersaw. In This Beautiful Space "DANCING @ CIVICORPS," audience will be led through this unique building to witness what the performers and the space have to offer.
