dc.description.abstract Architecture and dance are not typically thought of as having much in common. Architects design buildings which are stationary and solid, while dancers choreograph movements that create fleeting moments of beauty. Typically, architecture and dance do not overlap. However, artists are beginning to realize correlations between the two and to explore those relationships through interdisciplinary collaborative projects. In today's professional world there is an increasing demand for collaboration on projects, even collaborations with professionals from other fields. I teamed up with Ellyn Sjoquist, a dance performance major at Akron University to work on a performance in which architecture and dance were brought together. We presented our work at a final performance and presentation at Akron University on April 8. Through our collaboration, we explored how architecture and dance can work together and we discovered the values of interdisciplinary collaboration firsthand.
