Informal Dance Performance: Salem State Dance Faculty featuring guest artist Kris Lenzo

October 26, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Event Navigation

The Salem State dance faculty share an informal showing of recent choreography. Caitlin Corbett continues her exploration of movement-driven dance that celebrates human quirkiness and challenges our notion of beauty. Corbett’s resistance to linear story telling and overt meaning is evident in her dances, as is her utter faith in the power of movement to express. Movement is shaped to distill an idea to an essential emotional resonance.  Meghan McLyman shows work that explores the balance between motherhood and oneself including the joys, frustrations, and pure exhaustion of simply trying to make it through the day. James Morrow reflects on white privilege, the music industry, and his own dance background as a white artist who works primarily in an Africanist Aesthetic. Guest artist Kris Lenzo performs Morrow’s Passage Hawk, a work that challenges the genre of wheelchair dancing finding nontraditional ways of exploring both movement and the use of the apparatus itself.
