Spring MFA Dance Thesis Concert
By Julia Smith
Hauntings is a collection of portraits exploring what it means to live and dance after half a life.
Themes of love, beauty, grief and nostalgia emerge as Smith and her fellow artists depict characters wrestling with the complexities of intimate relationships, impermanence and mortality. The dances draw inspiration from the music and poetry of Chopin, Debussy, Charles Trenet, Scriabin, Richter, John Keats, Sylvia Plath, Ted Hughes, W.B Yeats and Robert Lowell.
By Curtis Stedge
Invoking Justice is a gritty and macabre cross-cultural survey of magical justice, in our shared mythology, that places the human collective on trial, as it explores the testimony that lies at the very depths of the human soul.
