NewsAin't Nothin but Mammals at Marlboro
Marlboro, VT (March 23, 2007)- Marlboro College senior Jordan Hendrickson’s dance performance, Ain’t Nothin but Mammals, will explore scientific concepts she studied as a biochemistry student.
Hendrickson choreographed the show which will be held in Whittemore Theater on Friday, April 27 and Saturday, April 28 at 8:00 p.m.
“The eight dances examine themes surrounding attraction, reproduction, homosexuality and relationships between mammals,” says Hendrickson.
She chose 22 mostly untrained dancers to perform the pieces because she says that “central to the performance is the idea that everyone has their own kinesthetic movement and that each individual’s movement is inherently interesting and beautiful. I’ve tried to preserve that sense of natural movement.”
Hendrickson’s dance is part of her Plan of Concentration, a requirement for graduation from Marlboro College. The Plan is an intensive course of study in under the guidance of a faculty sponsor. The cumulative effort of two years, the Plan can take a multiplicity of forms, but usually requires a minimum of 60 pages and two years to complete.
