Spectrum: Dance for Camera Showings
November 19-21 @ 8:00PM
The Department of Dance’s Fall 2020 Spectrum: Dance for Camera Showings provides a window into the artmaking process of choreographers in a time of social distancing. Trying times calls for creative measures and the dance faculty, with the students by their side, have chosen to present their creative work in the medium of Dance Film for this semester’s presentation. Leaning into technology as opposed to live theater, six dance films presented by eight dance faculty (Rasika Borse and Colette Kerwick, Joshua Manculich and Evelyn Toh Paoli, Adele Nickel, Donald C. Shorter, Jr., Andrew Noble, and Dionne Sparkman Noble) and featuring over 70 dancers, will stream one after another 8 PM on November 19, 20, and 21, 2020. “The dancers want to dance and they want to connect to their audience. We have found a safe way to ensure that this still happens, even in strange times,” says Associate Professor Dionne Noble, one of the choreographers on the bill.
