PROJECT INFORMATION

Ina E Gittings Complex Exp / Stevie Eller Dance Theatre

Description

Expands the Ina E. Gittings complex for the School of Music and Dance, Dance Division. The facility includes a new performance dance venue, Stevie Eller Dance Theatre, of approximately 300 seats, studio and support spaces to the east of the existing Gittings facility.

Design Intent

This building is an integration of art, movement and architecture. The 300-seat theater is accompanied by space for support functions, studios, and teaching. Components include full flytower, control suite catwalks, box booms, orchestra pit, indoor/outdoor lobby, outdoor stage, and scene and costume shops. A divider separates dressing rooms on performance night and can be rolled up into the ceiling to transform the spaces into a somatics studio which opens to a courtyard. The dance studio is a glass box that celebrates the dance program and functions as a display window to the university mall. It is protected from the elements by a scrim of woven wire.
