Scenic Route: MKE

"...the dancers manage to soar...spar and embrace, entangling in a postmodern tango with a causal ease that belies the tricky lifts, roll and falls they invent before our eyes" - The Washington Post

Join Daniel Burkholder/The PlayGround for the latest iteration of the "Scenic Route" project. This event entails a select group of audience members attending a 2-hour nature hike and site-specific performance with the company. In "Scenic Route: MKE" the company will lead you along one of Milwaukee's most beautiful hikes, while offering dance and music performances at specific locations along the hike. It will undoubtedly be a unique way to experience both nature and the performing arts. 

                                                                                                                    Please note: all audience members will be emailed the day before the hike with specific details about where to meet.
