Spring M.F.A. Dance Thesis Concert
Lost Patterns by Rebecca Hill
Driven by curiosity, ongoingness and experimentation, Hill devises a sonic landscape that breaks the boundaries between music and dance. Bodies become instruments and intricate choreographies yield sound in a piece that highlights the value of community. Six percussive dancers and two musicians investigate the translation process prevalent in Appalachian old-time music to unearth experimentation tethered to tradition.
Finally, Fairies! by Tristan Koepke
Finally, Fairies! is a choreography: an unruly maze of embodied archaeologies, hauntologies and compositions that draw inspiration from Vaporwave and the writings of Jacques Derrida and Mark Fisher. Six performers explore aesthetic gesture and capitalist realism through encounters with specters and revenants. This devised work, decidedly unsettled, presents a landscape of precarious connections and unstable meanings that fade as quickly as they appear.
This event is part of Arts for All, a campuswide initiative which leverages the combined power of the arts, technology and social justice to address the grand challenges of our time.
