Sam Houston State University’s Department of Dance presents Cardinal
A Dance Film by MFA Candidate Jorrell Lawyer-Jefferson
Jorrell Lawyer-Jefferson’s Cardinal, is a dance film that explores the use of cathartic experiences as purposeful creative material. In partial fulfillment of the Master of Fine Arts Degree in Dance this dance for the camera features 14 performers and is the culmination of a year-long creative research process. Inspired by non-traditional story structures and cinema, Lawyer-Jefferson’s work is a reclamation of trauma and its use to facilitate personal change. Split into two acts, Cardinal is a commentary on emotional anchors and the process of pushing forward. This engaging and visually provocative dance film will be streamed via YouTube Live on February 26 & 27, 2021 at 8:00 PM.
