Studiodance I 2013

Thursday-Saturday, March 7-9, 2013, at 7pm and 9pm | Studio Theatre

Dance at Illinois Series | Emerging choreographic artists and Master of Fine Arts candidates Renée Archibald, Kathleen Kelley, and Tamin Totzke present their work in this self-produced concert.

Renée Archibald’s quartet Shake shake with a live interactive sound score brings new life to the old cliché of the dancer’s body as instrument. The work investigates sound as a kinetic sense, with rhythm accumulating and dissolving into a sempiternal metabolic process and tumbling into a finely tuned cacophony that animates the performance space with lush visual noise.

In To the Land, Kathleen Kelley creates an atmosphere of space-age cinematic minimalism haunted by nostalgic romanticism. To the Land foregrounds the immersive relationships that entangle the seven performers in a strange and uncharted imagined landscape and includes a musical score performed live through remote interactive video technology.

Tamin Totzke’s FOR(ever) is inspired by the frozen landscapes of Minnesota, where forever is a mirage, a place coaxing time to stand still. The work is an opulent ode to winter’s statuesque stillness and is a collage of dance, music, and projections.

After the 9pm performance on March 8, an OLLI discussion will be held inside the theatre.

This performance will last approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes and has no intermission.
