In Hollywood, Calif. many old movie theaters have been converted into churches. For Face Off Theatre Company in Kalamazoo, a former church is now their home in Dormouse Theatre.
As the weather finally turns to spring in Southwest Michigan and we look to spend more time outside and less in front of our screens, watching what otherwise would have been a live performance on the computer may be the last thing people thought of doing this weekend.
The world’s wild shifts and changes over the past year have required all of us to pivot and adapt, and the arts and the way we interact with them are no exception. Live performance, especially, has taken a hit, and with increased screen time in practically all areas of life, a mere shift from stage to screen for audiences hasn’t exactly cut it.
No doubt this past weekend’s 12th Regional Annual Dance Festival hosted by Wellspring Cori Terry & Dancers was a balm to the pandemic-weary dance lovers who opted in to the virtual event.
