DanceWorks harnesses the dynamic expression of the human body. The poetry of movement replaces words in an evolving landscape of imagery and emotion. This year's program features dances by eight talented students and two alumni choreographers. As movement enthusaists, they have chosen to investigate their creative visions kentically. They are learning to become adept at communicating ideas via the infinitely malleable elements of space, time and energy. To up the ante, this year the choreographers have been challenged to create their dances on an 8x8 foot stage. This constraint breeds a wealth of creative possibilities as it encourages the artists to truly focus their vision.
