DANSCORE Includes Choreography by Three New York City-based Guest Artists
The Department of Dance at The College at Brockport presents performances of DANSCORE on Thursday, November 15, through Saturday, November 17, 2018, at the Hartwell Dance Theater in Hartwell Hall on the Brockport campus. All performances begin at 7:30 pm. Ticket prices for all performances are $17/General, $12/Seniors, College at Brockport Alumni, Faculty and Staff, and $9/Students.
The department is making an effort to meet demand from the community to see their often sold-out dance concerts. They have instituted Community Previews, for which there will be 100 tickets available for $5 each (by the usual means) for many of their performances. The Hartwell preview will take place on Wednesday, November 14, at 7:30 pm. These showings will not qualify for required student attendance.
The evening includes work by three New York City-based artists. “Strict Love,” by internationally acclaimed choreographer Doug Varone, has been restaged on Brockport students by former Varone company member and current dance faculty member Julia Burrer. Emily Schoen, former dancer with Keigwin + Company, has created a new dance entitled “It Comes Back to One.” Britt Falcon, an alumna of the Brockport Department of Dance, and artistic director of Falcon Dance, created “Beauty Happening” on students during her residency at Brockport Summer Dance and will also premiere a new solo. Other choreographers include full-time faculty members James Hansen, Mariah Maloney, and Darwin Prioleau. Hansen will be restaging “Revival” on three alumni who are professional dancers in Rochester while Maloney and Prioleau will be premiering exciting new dances created in the fall of 2018.
Artistic director James Hansen remarked: “As we celebrate 50 years of the Department of Dance at The College at Brockport, it’s a special privilege to include alumni in DANSCORE, and to highlight our significant New York City connections through internationally recognized guest artists. Brockport continues to present the best modern dance in upstate New York.”
