Weaving together a new heart for intercultural life and mission
Live Performances Daily at Alfons Gallery
In “The Accumulation of Acts,” their new Alfons Gallery installation of moving sculpture, local performers Andrea and Daniel Burkholder use live action, video, theatrical sets, and interactive technology to explore the city’s people, places and history, and the impact of change.
Andrea and David will be performing live each day during the gallery’s regular hours of 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. The performances are continuous, so visitors are welcome to enter the space and take a seat at any time, and may stay as long as they wish.
Andrea is a choreographer, performer, and teacher. For more than a decade she directed and performed with the acclaimed Arachne Aerial Arts in Washington, D.C. Daniel is a choreographer, improviser, performer, teacher, and lighting designer and is currently Assistant Professor of Dance at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
Admission is free and small groups are welcome. To arrange a group visit or for more information, please contact Alfons Gallery Director Valerie Christell at 414-385-5273 or email@example.com.
