Spring Forward 2013 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 a revival of a work titled, Commonplace, that was choreographed in 1996 by master choreographer Susan Hadley.  In this reconstruction from Labanotation score the dancers portray the heartfelt sense of community a group of strong women connect with.  Gregory Catellier, Senior Lecturer in the Dance Program at Emory University will present a new work that comments on the use of social media in every day encounters.  The concert will also feature a new piece by student choreographer Chandler Converse and two works choreographed by Bridget Roosa, director of the dance program. Roosa’s new works include a collaborative performance piece by Complex Mammal, with choreography by Bridget Roosa and light, set design and projection by faculty member Nell Ruby.  This 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.
