Harvardwood Suggests... On Display Harvard: A Worldwide Movement Installation

December 03, 2020 at 2:00pm - 3pm

You're invited to participate in or attend a worldwide movement installation titled ON DISPLAY GLOBAL (ODG), created by physically-integrated dance company Heidi Latsky Dance. The work is performed by a network of communities around the world each year in honor of the United Nations' International Day of Persons with Disabilities. The Harvard Dance Center has been an Ambassador of the work for the past two years, coordinating ON DISPLAY HARVARD at accessible public spaces on Harvard's campus. 

This year will be entirely new. Because of COVID-19, ODG will be a 24-hour live, Zoom event that audience members and performers can move into and out of throughout the day.

The Harvard Dance Center has been invited to host one hour of the 24-hour Zoom event. From 5-6pm EST, Harvard participants will perform the work and the Harvard community at large is invited to attend and bear witness. 

The Dance Center is thrilled to be partnering with the Harvard Art Museums, the original planned site for ON DISPLAY HARVARD 2020. Previous years' partners have been Harvard Commons, The Smith Campus Center, and Harvard Library.
