The famous aphorism, “Writing about music is like dancing about architecture,” suggests that architecture has nothing to do with dance, and dance has nothing to do with architecture. However, dance has everything to do with space and architecture, as demonstrated by site-specific dance artists such as Tzveta Kassabova ‘09. This UMD MFA Dance alumna is an innovative scientist-turned-artist who recently opened a new arts space in Detroit called Andy that challenges the misconception that dance and architecture are antithetical to one another.
