The Palladino School of Dance at Dean College will be holding a Faculty Works concert December 4 5, 2015.
The Palladino School of Dance at Dean College will be
holding a Faculty Works concert December 4-5, 2015. The concert will feature
dance faculty performing and sharing their work in a range of genres, as well
as famous repertory by Lester Horton, and contemporary interdisciplinary work
that will showcase both the art of dance and the dance of our artists.
Faculty members participating in the concert include,
William Evans, Kristina Berger, Julianne O’Brien Pedersen, Rose Pasquerello
Beauchamp, Amanda Donahue, Betsy Miller, Erin Mayfield, Todd Shanks, Julie
White, and Stephen Tracy Ursprung.
William Evans, artist in residence at Dean with decades of
rich and extensive experience in the world of modern dance, will perform two
solos as well as choreograph a work for four faculty members.
Evans first solo piece Three Preludes was created in honor
of his mother, Lila Snape Evans. “It evokes her loving spirit in three
different moods,” said Evans. “I combine my personal modern dance style and
language with the language of rhythm tap dance.” His second solo Interview is a
performance art work that examines the process of attending a job interview in
hilarious and poignant ways. The work is choreographed by Claire Porter, a
renowned choreographer, writer and performance artist who creates work annually
for the Bill Evans Dance Teachers Institute.
The Dreaming Gate, Evans choreographed piece for faculty
members, is a new work commissioned by the School of Dance for this occasion.
Faculty performing the work include, Rose Pasquarello Beauchamp, Amanda
Donahue, Betsy Miller, and Julianne O'Brien Pedersen. “I created several motif
phrases in our first rehearsal and then asked each dancer to create a personal
phrase in which she/he manipulated one of mine and added her/his unique voice,”
said Evans. “I am now weaving those phrases into a movement tapestry that
evokes a sense of mystery and ritual. Each artist is beautifully expressive and
it has been a joyful experience to interact with them in this way.”
Faculty member Kristina Berger, an international performer,
master teacher of the Horton Technique, and choreographer, will perform Sarong
Paramaribo by Donald Martin, Artistic Director of Lester Horton Dance Theatre,
Inc. Sarong Paramaribo is a distinguished and illustrious solo piece
choreographed by modern dance pioneer Lester Horton. Reconstructed by Don
Martin for Kristina Berger, this rare solo will allow the audience to
experience another time and place in dance history.
“Sarong Paramaribo is a beautiful jewel in dance history,”
said Berger. “The piece is from another time but is in its way timeless, a
sparklingly delightful tribute to two different parts of the world.”
Faculty Works will perform both Friday and Saturday,
December 4-5, 2015, at 8:00 p.m. in the Main Stage within the Dean College
campus center, 99 Main Street, Franklin, MA. Tickets range from $5-$22 and can
