“Dance of Arrival” by Dancer and Choreographer Liz Walker
2022 Artist-in-Residence, ballet dancer, and choreographer, Liz Walker will guide visitors on a tour of historic graves on the theme of motherhood, as Walker and violinist Beth Bahia Cohen perform together in response to each site. Guests will then take their seats in Asa Gray Garden for the second half of the event, a meditative ballet to Beethoven’s “Spring” sonata. Walker, now a new mother, choreographed and performed the same ballet at Mount Auburn during her third trimester of pregnancy.
