Recent Sightings Recent sightings: Dancers upon stilts

March 2, 2015

Dancers took to stilts for a Brooklyn Jumbies workshop in Lathrop Hall on Saturday, Feb. 28. Participants worked with the dance performance group, which teaches cultural elements of the African diaspora like stilt walking, and Chris Walker, a UW–Madison associate professor of dance, to learn new dance moves in preparation for “Strut!” — a university dance event scheduled for May 2. The workshop was hosted by the UW–Madison Arts Institute as part of Laura Anderson Barbata’s spring interdisciplinary arts residency.
