April 1&2: An evening of dance collaborations
Whitman Dance Production, directed by Idalee Hutson-Fish, presents an evening of several dance collaborations. This event is free and open to the public.
The performances include:
“Romeo and Juliet,” staged and choreographed by Nate Freeman ’04. The play was originally presented in 2004, Freeman returned to campus in February to re-stage his original ballet and will return again for the performance to reprise his role as Romeo. Tillie Gottlieb ’11 is Juliet.
“Impressions of Igor,” based on the story of Coco Chanel, Igor Stravinsky and his wife/cousin Katerina Nossenko, is a collaborative piece by Hutson-Fish and Raffaele Exiana. With eight women and four men, the ballet flows with dynamic partnering and textured emotions. Sardinian born, Exiana is a former ballet dancer with the Roma Opera Ballet.
The Coriolis Dance Collective from Seattle are guest artists presenting two different works. Led by Natascha Greenwalt Murphy and Christin Call, “Lumen,” choreographed by Kara Davis, is danced with a somber introspective mood and “Inference,” choreographed by Gillmer Duran, is set to music by Beta Collide and danced by four members of the collective.
