The House of Accumulated Beauties

A Movement Tour through the Historic Palace

Thursday, October 11, 6:30 - 7:15 pm
Palace Galleries

The Museum's first Choreographer-in-Residence, Peter DiMuro, has created a 45-minute guided tour for visitors. Along their journey through the Museum, visitors will experience a series of performance installations crafted for each of the large Palace galleries. The tour will culminate in the Courtyard, with a grand “chorus of Isabellas" composed of professional dancers and community members of all ages, dance backgrounds, and abilities.  

Inspiration for the installations comes from the Collection and Isabella’s life and spirit, as well as from a century's worth of human interaction with the objects and paintings: those who guard, those who dust, and those who cultivate the greenery and flora in the Courtyard. The installations are less chronological narratives and more collagist impressions.
