Voices: A Walking Tour is a site-specific performance that takes the shape of a contemplative walking tour of campus after dark to discover the hidden voices in our landscape. The tour guide will lead audiences to performances in dance, spoken word and song at various monuments and historically significant sites on the UNC campus. This performance asks: what can we learn when we are quiet and let the voices of the past come into conversation with the present? Heather Tatreau, a UNC dance faculty member and professional choreographer, created her first iteration of this project in November 2018. Her intention was to re-visit UNC campus monuments to mark the changes in the physical and political landscape. The tour will end with a song from Affordable Housing: The Musical, under the direction of George Barrett, at Peace and Justice Plaza on Franklin St. to provide a link between the campus and the town. This diverse array of local voices come together in this performance to offer commentary on the place we call home. This performance is supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
