    10:30 AM—4:30 PM

    Museum-wide

    Melecio Estrella and Andrew Ward of Fog Beast use body-based theatrics in “The Big Reveal,” a subversive art experience with dancing, humor and live music. Presented in the format of a corporate conference turned dance theater, this interactive performance draws on family histories and immigration stories to consider access and belonging, revealing what lies beneath modern corporate America. As an audience member, you will move through the museum, orienting and reorienting yourself in “networking” sessions and in-depth breakout groups, culminating in a full-throttle keynote address. Co-presented by Dancers’ Group.
