Undergraduate and graduate students present solo and group works that highlight a range of ideas and concepts they’ve explored throughout the year, featuring an MFA project by April Biggs.
Works include the following:
April Biggs’ MFA Final Project, Of Otherness, considers the liminal spaces of being other – who do we see when we see ourselves; who gets to identify us; whose gaze validates us, and whose do we reject? Through its various dance dialects, Of Otherness depicts five women in reaction to their particular landscape of alterity, each enacting the labor required to survive
Buffet For Us, Those Bitches, by Anna Hershinow and Meledi Montano is a duet with an episodic structure. Traversing space with vivacity, entering the ethereal, and appreciating every quirk that lives in between, Hershinow and Montano query the essence of “a powerful woman.”
