About the Dances

Mair Culbreth: “Left, Where It Is” examines human communication, interaction and negotiation.

Mark Price: “Life Goes To A Party” was created with two influences in mind, a love of big band music of the 30s and 40s, as well as the work of Bob Fosse.

Debbie Sayles: “Rhythms” is a tap piece that explores the different sounds and movements created by the use of folding chairs as props.

Amy Love Beasley: “Assembly” is a piecing together of remembering, drawing, folding, circling, dropping, catching, spiraling, flying, falling, gathering…assembling.

Brantly Shapiro: “Dream” brings to life excerpts from Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” where fairies venture out at nightfall and dance until the first rays of morning sunlight.

Christina Soriano: “For Cage” is a solo that explores three distinct pieces of John Cage’s music throughout his prolific 60-year career.

Nina Lucas and Dr. Steven Mizel: “Lamentation Before Sunrise” is a collaborative project integrating science and dance that combines artistic excellence in dance with understanding of how the immune system works and the manner in which HIV causes destruction of a key part of the system.

Justin Mann: “3 x a Perspective” is about the entire experience of cancer and how this terrible disease not only affects the person who is sick, but affects their friends and family as well.

Tina Yarborough Liggins: A new work by Yarborough featuring a fusion of jazz dance with a Latin influence.

Chris Martin: “Glance” examines the process of shifting the weight from foot to foot.
