BFA and MFA student works include the following:
- come on come on come on come on now touch me baby (adherence/coherence) by Claire Melbourne: a collaborative movement exploration, explores surface tension created by layers of contact within a "performing" group. Through intimate and rascally state based improvisation and shared gestural movement, we rub, seep and sound out across bodies--human, performing group, architectural space and guests/audience-- allowing the excess created by intersection and overlap to disrupt and stretch fixed lines and boundaries. This preshow site adapted performance begins at 7:15 each evening and 2:15 for the matinee.
- Jazelynn Goudy’s work deals and processes the "it" of her life. With voice, dance, and radical self-love, she shares the intimate parts of herself in her home on stage. You're in for a hoot.
- Rupture Front, by Brianna Johnson, explores slipping and locked boundaries of identity, and wonders what erupts through the cracks in our crust. According to the United States Geological Survey, a Rupture Front is "the instantaneous boundary between the slipping and locked parts of a fault during an earthquake."
Rust, by Lindsay Schleich, started as a class project and turned into something bigger.
tremolo, by Jacqueleen Bordjadze, thinks about spontaneity, joy, urban living and the compositional impact of an audience.
- Push Through, by Alexandra Cassidy - With pain, comes resilience….
- The Thick In-between, by Gina Hoch-Stall, delves into the meaning of embodied movement. The dance attempts to solve the puzzle of itself through careful observation, stop-motion and high velocity physicality.
- Widgets, by Emily Jones - Start with a beat and make a little ditty.
- Sink into Sync, by Natalie Newman, demonstrates the beneficial existence of individuality within a coalesced community. The dancers take part in a uniform game, finding a collective rhythm while embracing the distinctive characteristics between one another.
- One and Six, by Dian Jing, starts from weight switching to explore the energy produced by one person and six people.
