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.
