Case Western Reserve University Department of Dance will present the Spring 2012 MaDaCol (Mather Dance Collective of Case Western Reserve University) production featuring choreography by dance graduate students Carissa Bellando, Chun-Jou Tsai and Kristy Clement, and undergraduate student Hannah Barna. The performance runs Thursday and Friday, April 19th and 20th at 8:00pm and Saturday, April 21st at 7:00pm and 8:30pm. MaDaCol is a student organization that offers an important creative outlet for Case Western Reserve University students (both undergraduate and graduate), faculty, staff, and Greater Cleveland community members. This spring over 40 dancers will be participating.
Through Phrases, choreographed by second year graduate student Carissa Bellando, with music by George Winston, is an abstract work using nature’s seasonal changes and events as inspiration.
Kristy Clement’s duet, Cautiously Approaching, featuring an original score composed by Davison Robie and Nickolas Hartgrove, portrays two timid individuals who support and push each other in their exploration toward bravery and accomplishment.
Chun Jou Tsai describes her work Manniquins, as a mysterious poem. They are beautiful. They are ideal. They only wake up after hours. Playing and having fun, something different happens tonight…..
Hannah Barna’s piece, Untitled, focuses on the nature of love and begins with eleven metronomes creating the music onstage, where each dancer has an individual tempo and pitch.
Tickets are $5 for general admission and may be purchased at Mather Dance Center prior to each performance. Early arrival is suggested because seating fills quickly.
