The maps on this research blog are intended both to support research on the dance touring practices by Kate Elswit  (in her ongoing collaboration with Harmony Bench) and to inspire new research questions. The maps are  “exploratory visualizations” of the American Ballet Caravan’s progress in 1941 South America. The bright lines, circles, and polygons overlaying highlight the possible connections between the dancers on the tour. The maps, and must-read surrounding research blog, bring up interesting questions about the intersections between individual dancers, the company, and the many places to and from which they travel.
