As part of a larger project called “Mapping Movement,” Harmony Bench and Kate Elswit’s “Mapping Touring” project seeks to visualize dance history through the domestic and international tours of ballet and modern dance companies during the 20th century. It displays data related to troupe, venue, date, works performed, and personnel in a searchable database, a map visualization of performances, and a map visualization of tour routes. On the performance map, you can select date ranges and specific troupes, allowing the viewer to follow one of the nine companies represented along their tour, or track overall performance patterns.
