"Pairs in the Park" is a collection of site-specific duets choreographed by Chris Yon and Taryn Griggs in collaboration with ten North Carolina dancers. The performance takes place along a path in the Ann and Jim Goodnight Museum Park at the North Carolina Museum of Art. After the isolation of the past year, Chris and Taryn are excited to connect with dancers from across the state using their unique duet dance-making practice as a catalyst for new collaborations and creations. The audience will move in groups of 16 led by docents through various terrain to view duets situated within the park. Be aware that the audience will travel over a half mile loop to view the performance. Performance will run approximately 60 minutes.

Please note, there are 5 groups of 16 per day for this event. If purchasing for more than 1 person and tickets purchased are not in the same group, you will be separated for the event so purchase early to ensure there is availability.
