Turning Bog Garden and Greene St. Deck into dance stages

The site-specific production last weekend was choreographed by UNCG MFA student Caroline Althof, in collaboration with the performers.

Later in the day, police blocked off Washington Street in downtown for the production of another of her MFA thesis projects – at the downtown Greene Street Parking garage. An even larger crowd, about 80-100 plus some surprised passersby, took in the unique performance by a cast of mostly different performers.

Both productions will be repeated this Sunday, April 13. Be at the Bog Garden at 2 p.m. and Greene Street Parking Deck at 8 p.m. for unique dance experiences.
