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.
