Featuring provocative choreography by M.F.A. Dance students, this concert is a collection of eclectic new works, serving as an unguarded exploration of these diverse artists' talents and interests.

This concert features works by Daniel Miramontes, Mary Kathryn (MK) Ford, Brittany Falcon, Rebecca Steinberg, Kevin Clark, and Peter Pattengill.

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.

Safe Harbor by Kevin Clark
This dance is an exploration of the body as a safe harbour when the mind gets lost and the paths I take to return to myself. The piece is a tribute to the present, the body, the self; a reminder of the importance of being grounded in relentless times; a connection and reaction to ever-shifting landscapes. 

paper study by Brit Falcon and Javier Padilla 
paper study is a public act of molting; an improvisational dialogue between two bodies in a ‘home’ built out of elusive memories, fractured realities, and the yearning for stability through structure, material, and body. This study is part of the ongoing research for Home, Heart, Hero, a Falcon Dance devised evening length project.
