Presented by Downtown Dance Collective.
Destination Dance, a site-specific dance tour through downtown Reno, utilizing signature monuments in the heart of Reno such as the Downtown Reno Library, the contemporary Nevada Museum of Art, the newly renovated Renaissance Reno and bocce ball courts,, and the historical Old Post Office, Destination Dance will celebrate our city’s unique sense of place through movement.
Tour groups departing from the Reno City Plaza at 6:00pm, 6:20pm, 6:40pm, and 7:00pm. The tour route will be approximately 1 mile and will take one hour to complete. The event is open to the public, and people will be welcome to join the tour for as many stops as they choose.
Site-specific dance is work that is created in response to a particular place or site, inspired by its architecture, design, history, or current use. Destination Dance will feature the work of local choreographers who have been commissioned to create unique performances juxtaposed against iconic downtown fixtures, taking traditional and contemporary dance off of the stage and into a new environment. Tour guides will be equipped able to discuss the history behind the various sites and the inspiration behind each artist’s choreographic decisions.
