This week I was fortunate to dance with Shannon Leith in her “Butter Arc” exhibition. Shannon Leith is a graduating MFA Photography major in the CSULB School of the Arts. During her exhibition we performed an improvised dance to her instructional sound score. This was such an incredible experience to blend two different art forms together, and connect with other artists. Leith practices contact improvisation herself, so it was really nice getting to interact with an unfamiliar body in the space. Unfortunately she asked us to not take photos or video of the work, but there is a video of us dancing on her Instagram.
