Efflorescence by Greta Cover

In Efflorescence, Cover stages mirrors to explore how we navigate the discovery of multiple versions of our personalities throughout our lives and who we choose to identify with to construct our truest self. This work prompts audiences to ask how one’s identity impacts others and how all of our lives are interconnected.

natürliches sparkle, natürlich arranged by Carlo Antonio Villanueva

natürliches sparkle, natürlich overlaps choreographed material and improvisational strategies in the interest of blurring delineations between the two. In this landscape of bleeding edges, the performers will work to maintain dancing that values listening, clear intention, and the live pursuit of possibility.

TDPS’ Experimental Performance Series provides a research laboratory for undergraduate and graduate students to develop new work for the stage, including plays, devised theater pieces and choreographic explorations that demonstrate student creativity and curiosity.

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.
