Dancers Perform Choreography Exploring the Urchin

Seven dancers explore the concept of empathy with everyday objects in a performance surrounding the Urchin, an installation on the Arts Quad. Fugitive Spaces was choreographed by Jumay Chu, a senior lecturer in Performing and Media Arts, as a part of the Cornell Council for the Arts 2016 biennial, titled “Abject/Object Empathies.”

If you walk around the Cornell campus at this time of the year, you might be surprised by what you find. The Cornell Council for the Arts 2016 Biennial has just started around campus and one of the most capturing installations is the urchin. It is an enormous white structure in the middle of the Arts Quad. You can’t really tell what it is until you start getting closer. That’s when you see the spikes.
