GroundWorks DanceTheater’s 2018 Fall Series features the world premiere of a dynamic new project created in partnership with the Akron Art Museum and funded by a Knight Foundation Arts Challenge award. GroundWorks Artistic Director David Shimotakahara was given permission to work in response to an important piece from the Museum’s permanent collection, the magnificent Dzesi II by internationally-renowned artist El Anatsui. Initially part of the Akron Museum’s 2012 exhibition, Gravity and Grace, Dzesi II has become one of the most popular works in its collection.

In addition to the performance of this exciting new work, each showing will also feature audience engagement with commentary by Artistic Director David Shimotakahara and Akron Art Museum Chief Curator Ellen Rudolph.
