Milwaukee, WI (July 13, 2020)… Get out of the house, drive, park and from the safety of your car watch Wild Space Dance Company in a free live event. Drive-In Dance performances are at 8:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. July 28-29-30 in the empty Interstate Parking/ICC Lot at 178 N. Jackson St. Drive-in Dance will be the city’s first live dance performance since the shut-down. Designated parking has been designed for safe distancing and capacity for the event will be limited to 20 car per show. Advanced reservations are required. www.wildspacedance.org.

Artistic Director, Debra Loewen asked, “How can we dance together and where could we perform safely for a live audience? From these concerns came the idea of creating Drive-In Dance.

Dancers lit by headlights and hunting lanterns move in a new landscape, strangely beautiful and intimate. Dancers appear and disappear assessing distance and proximity. Solos, duets and trios arise unexpectedly as intricate scores unfold with full-bodied dancing under the night sky.

Capacity is limited to 20 cars per show. Required reservations include a safely distanced parking space. All attendees will be sent details regarding safety procedures. A Drive-in Dance sound file will be sent the day of the show to each car reservation.

Performers: Katelyn Altmann, Chelsey Becher, Simone Ferro, Tori Isaac, Mauriah Kraker, Molly Keifer, Danielle Lohuis, Jenni Reinke, Lindsey Ruenger and Yeng Vang-Strath.
