Performance installation commemorates opening of Stanford's McMurtry Building

Stanford has a new space for art, and this weekend, it will be commemorated in an unusual way. The McMurtry Art and Art History Building will be the site of "Space Launch!," a dance performance installation that takes place this Saturday, Nov. 7, and Sunday, Nov. 8, at 3 p.m.

Presented by the Chocolate Heads Movement Band under the direction of Aleta Hayes, a faculty member of Stanford's Department of Theater & Performance Studies and its Dance Division, "Space Launch!" combines live choreography with vocal music and futuristic costumes in an immersive work that honors the architecture and spirit of the new building.

No reservations are necessary to attend these free performances, which will begin at the McMurtry Courtyard, 355 Roth Way, Stanford.
