 Danceworks 2012 will be an evening of dynamic dance performance by members of Studio Dance Theatre, the student-performing ensemble, at Agnes Scott College. The program includes two reconstructions from Labanotaiton score.  The first is a revival of a work from 1906 by modern dance pioneer Ruth St. Denis called Incense and the second work, Commonplace, was choreographed in 1996 by master choreographer Susan Hadley.  The concert will also feature a new piece by student choreographer Chandler Smoak and two new works choreographed by Bridget Roosa, director of the dance program. Roosa’s new works include a collaboration with the ASC Chamber Orchestra directed by faculty member Qiao Solomon and a new collaborative performance piece by Complex Mammal, with choreography by Bridget Roosa and light, set design and projection by faculty member Nell Ruby.  This new collaborative work is called HeLa and is a response to the Agnes Scott common read book, “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks”.  This evening highlights the dancers versatility and will provide something for everyone to enjoy.


Join us on November 9th and 10th at 8 p.m. in Gaines Chapel, Presser Hall for Danceworks 2012.   Tickets are Free for the ASC community and $5 general admission.  Cash purchase at the door only.
