The Department of Dance at The Ohio State University presents of existence: and ways of being, featuring choreographers Noelle Bohaty, s.lumbert and Brandon Whited, as part of the MFA Dance Concert series.
the order of things examines love, loss, fear and relationships across time and reality. Choreographer Noelle Bohaty directs this original work, based in and around the poetry of Anne Sexton, the mythological story of Icarus, and the collective, devised work of company members. the order of things features nine performers from both dance and theatre, as well as musical composition by Kevin Estes, costume design by Ron Altman and lighting design by Joshua Poston.
s. lumbert’s solo is a choreographic collaboration with dance artist Jennifer Nugent, former dancer with Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company. The piece explores experiment through process and long distance collaboration. Lighting design by Carolyn Cox.
Cipher XY is a choreographic exploration of masculine identity and representation in dance. Choreographer Brandon Whited queries: what is male, what is masculinity, and what are the accepted notions of maleness and masculinity? This dance reflects themes of difference through exposure of bodies as they exist in the spaces – between genders, expectations, and one another. Lighting design by David Covey.
The Barnett Theatre is located on the third floor of Sullivant Hall, 1813 N High Street.
