Fluid Perspectives: Pack Dance Performance (at CAM) – Sold out

This event is sold out. 

This two-part dance performance explores the synchronicity between two exhibitions: Matisse and the Sea at the Saint Louis Art Museum (SLAM) and Paul Chan: Breathers at CAM, both of which highlight Henri Matisse’s bathers and playful movements of shape and color. Both pieces are conceived of and choreographed by Pack Dance Company.

On April 18, a limited audience will enjoy an in-gallery performance at CAM around Chan’s Breathers series.

Doors open at 7 pm.

This performance has limited seating available, and prior registration is required. Reserve a free ticket for the April 18 performance at CAM here.
