Senior BFA students present their capstone projects, which paint an engaging and captivating picture of these students’ experiences and time at Ohio State, including: 

  • Influence of Dance, by Alexandra Rose Cassidy in collaboration with dancers, which explores Latin culture identity in contemporary dance using Latin dance concepts to inform the contemporary movement;
  • the narrow path, by Demetra Chiafos, a solo exploring controlled freedom, spiritual struggle and searching for peace created after researching the work of fellow Orthodox Christian choreographer George Balanchine;
     
  • a brief inquiry as to why women don’t go to the bathroom alone, by Emily Kilroy, *disclaimer* no one will be going to the bathroom onstage;
    Dancers rehearsing
     
  • Journey; part I; a collaborative piece by Beatrice Bernstein, MFA at Trinity Laban in Greenwich London, and performer Jane Schriner, which draws on Jane’s artistic journey honoring the love and respect for the African American movement and community in her past which has inevitably shaped who she is now; 
  • Lean in and Fall, part II, choreographed and performed by Jane Schriner, which draws upon the experiences she has scrapbooked together in her summer abroad in Denmark and travels through Europe in fall semester of 2019;
  • Surrender, part III, an excerpt from Deeply Rooted repertory Surrender representing the trinity of spirit, mind, and body, choreographed by Kevin Iega Jeff and coached by Dominique Atwood for Jane Schriner;
  • Tactile Projection, by Rachel Smith, which is a continuation of a study on the application of a kinesthetic analysis considering whether the knowledge and application of muscle and bone movements during a dance results in clearer body movements;
  • Loomed, by Molly Stanton, a journey with grief and its lingering influences;
    Dancer rehearsing in a studio
  • Same Airspace, by Calder White and performed by Sutton Coffey, which was created to deviate from the dancer’s natural tendencies. The music is PvP by Tessa Biskner, a Columbus-based artist who collaborated with Sutton to create something that fit with the movement and overall presentation of this piece.

The concert also features sections from Rooms (1954), by Anna Sokolow, including “Alone” (isolation), “Panic” (anxiety), “Desire” (unrequited love), “The End” (inner turmoil) and “Daydream” (feelings of longing), which all align with aspects of mental health in today’s society. Rooms portrays a desolate modern urban landscape.
