Meshroom is a performance environment that forms an intellectual/intentional community around an open dance floor. It is a space for transcending narrow languages, ungrounding from fixed realities, and co-creating temporary worlds in movement. Meshroom is shaped by the movement, dreams, hopes, and queerness of everyone in the room: it is a weaving of wild minds and soft bodies. All visitors are welcome to move, rest, witness, think, and melt with live music and occasional performances.
The event will be photo and video documented for archival use and purposes.
Meshroom is presented by the Duke Dance Program and Marika Niko (MFA in Dance '23) in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Fine Arts in Dance in the Graduate School at Duke University.
