NewsOriginal Student Dance Performances
Creativity and imagination shine in student dance performances throughout April. These performances are a culmination of students’ intensive study and preparation as part of their Plan of Concentration, the cornerstone of Marlboro’s academic program. Marlboro College’s Plan of Concentration is a self-designed, rigorous exploration of an academic and/or artistic subject. Working one-on-one with faculty, each student produces an extensive body of work involving independent research and innovative content. All performances will take place in Whittemore Theater at Marlboro College.
Senior Kristiana Molitor presents “(Awe)full,” featuring dances about the shrinking prairies of her home state, the daytime activities of circles and Flemih paintings and Restoration. Molitor, who explores dance and theater in her Plan of Concentration, choreographed the selections for an extensive Marlboro cast of dancers, and designed the costumes and hats which play an important role in one of the pieces. The shows will be performed on Friday, April 7 and Saturday, April 8 at 8:00 p.m.
In choreographing “Something in the Way They Move,” senior Vanessa Williams uses the personal experiences of women to illustrate the rediscovery of the body through dance. Williams explores traditional ideas about the body and the evolution of personal beliefs as part of her Plan of Concentration. This performance includes graphic content regarding sexual assault and may not be appropriate for all audiences. The shows will be performed Friday, April 21 and Saturday, April 22 at 8:00 p.m.
