BFA and MFA students present original choreography, featuring an MFA thesis project, Play, by Gina Hoch-Stall. The diverse works include:
Play, an MFA thesis Project by Gina Hoch-Stall, which began with a question: "How to make the work you're scared to make?"...FAST FORWARD through hours of experimentation, improvisation and conversation that generated...PLAY: a dance theater work turning itself inside out to reveal the awkward humanity breathing inside its delicious skill;
A new work by Abbie and Catie Armbrecht that emphasizes holding and breaking focus between dancers as well as the pairing of movement and music dynamics;
They wouldn’t let us call it what we wanted to call it … See/Saw, by Bita Bell and Fenella Kennedy…three points in space, two bodies, one house;
Silver Doe, by Yildiz Guventurk, a trio based on the dynamic space that arises from performers’ interactions with one another through individual movement qualities;
Saturdays 12-2, by Caitlyn Higley and Abby Koskinas, an exploration of embracing, rejecting and shaping the instinctual pathways of two movers—choreographed on Saturdays, 12-2;
Brianna Johnson’s work in which four individuals create and embody imaginary creatures, and together weave creature-like movement into a dynamic quartet;
buzzzzzzzzzzzz off, by Emily Kilroy, a duet in collaboration with Sutton Coffey, which has nothing to do with bees;
Point of Intersection, by Kara Komarintsky and Isabel Smith, which explores the geometric relationships of mathematical functions that produce contact between two objects;
Trebles, by Laura Neese, which reflects upon Neese’s conflicted relationship to Irish percussive dance performance as a some-percentage-Irish-American New Yorker, with live accompaniment by Sarah Troeller;
Agiocochook, by Laura Patterson in collaboration with dancers, which explores support systems that emerge within extreme circumstances, such as summiting a mountain in a winter storm;
The Numbers Game, by Mia Williams, which explores and questions the randomized structure this dance is built from.
