About the Works: 
exercise in patience
Choreography by Gabriella Czarniak '17 
Dancers and live musicians collaborate in this project to explore dispersion. Centripetal and centrifugal energies underlie the choreography and composition, inspired by our relationships to the personal and internal, the collective and external, and the space in-between.  

Set Adrift
Choreography by Miriam Huettner '17
"Man, looking into the sea— / taking the view from those who have as much right to it as you have to yourself— / it is human nature to stand in the middle of a thing / but you cannot stand in the middle of this" - Marianne Moore, poet

Business as Usual
Choreography by Lauren Balbus '17 and Talia Rothstein '17
Featuring creatures, high heels, and a storm blowing in, Business as Usual is an encounter with the otherworldly. Off-kilter dance moves are driven by the beats of a club and the scratching of a pencil. Ultimately, it is a performance rooted in loss: loss of self, loss of control, and loss of what once was.

A Dance Center residency opportunity for emerging student choreographers who wish to develop their choreographic skills through a semester-long, in-depth mentorship with professional choreographers — an incredible chance to work one-on-one with some of the best choreographers working in the field of dance today.
