Salem State Dance Faculty Performance

Salem State Dance Faculty Performance

Salem State dance faculty come together with an informal showing of recent choreography. 

James Morrow puts his past under the microscope as he explores his connections to the appropriation of black culture. Morrow reflects on white privilege, the music industry, and his dance background as a white artist who works primarily in an Africanist aesthetic. 

Caitlin Corbett shows a series of short inter-related works. eyeheartbrian, a quintet set to the music of genius composer Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, contrasts the flamboyant crooning of the Beach Boys with a spare, athletic movement vernacular. sentence, a quintet set to the music of singer/songwriter Ingrid Michaelson, pares down movement and structure to describe a singular thought. 

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.

This performance is free.
