Served – Williams College


A DANCE WITH WILLIAMS COLLEGE DINING SERVICES
February 2 – 3, 2018 at the Paresky Center at Williams College

The first in a series of dances with college campus employees, Served premiered at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts in February 2018. The work was created in collaboration with Williams’ food service employees, students, and faculty through a series of residencies throughout the 2016-17 and 2017-18 academic years, and featured lighting and set design by Stephen Pruitt and an original score by Graham Reynolds.

On Campus: Dances with College Campus Employees is a set of dances by, for and with campus employees, created through multi-visit residencies at host colleges or universities. Rather than touring a specific dance, this project tours Forklift Danceworks’ unique artmaking method, which involves collaboration with campus staff based on the work they do.
