Sandra Tanner’s Cherish delves into the choices and emotions that present themselves in a society where duty and expectation often trump matters of the heart. David Jones’ Shawty Get Loose promises to be stimulating, joyous, and playful. Just for Now, by Alan Scofield, depicts a man’s struggle to find direction where there is no clear choice as he follows his heart and keeps faith until the light appears. Deborah Graham’s iChAnGE, is a celebration of the centennial of the birth of John Cage, one of the most influential composers of the 20th century. This piece features original music by Tara Flandreau inspired by Cage’s Radio Music from 1956. Unsquare Dance by David Jones is a tribute to Dave Brubeck’s famous original and captivating instrumental piece by the same title. Departure, by Alan Scofield, reveals the conflicted yet hopeful emotions of a group of people who are quietly waiting in a holding room, not knowing who will be allowed to travel on to a brand new life. Kristi Kuhn’s Encounters explores the similar interactions and reactions between humans and animals.
Guests from San Domenico School present 9/11, Dedicated to Those Lost on November 2 and 3, choreographed by Ellen Bauer. On November 9 and 10, guests from the Branson Dance Performance Ensemble, under the direction of Georgia Ortega, use sign language, text, and Zoe Keating’s haunting cello to present a work about racial injustice and discrimination in Three Little Words. They will also present Function, a fusion of hip-hop and contemporary movement expressed to the hits of summer 2012, as well as three solo works, developed, choreographed, and performed by the students.
