According to artistic director and dance faculty member Stevie Oakes, “This exciting collection of 12 adjudicated dance works represents a series of bold, ferocious and nuanced movement choices from each of the student choreographers.” Exploring choreography that befits a three-sided studio-theater, this concert “oscillates between expansive explorations and intimate interweaving of space. The play between strong individual movers and community cohesion develops as a theme, uniting the scope of the works. Dancers seek connection and display virtuosity in movement and in style, while a wide array of soundscapes accompany this diverse collection of dances: enjoy the familiar voice of Billie Holliday alongside the sweeping strings of a Bach violin partita or the driving rhythms of our dancers moving together with gusto.”

The concert proudly demonstrates the range and talent of Brockport’s Department of Dance at both the graduate and undergraduate level, with many of the choreographers and performers appearing in their final semester of the Bachelor of Fine Arts program before they graduate and continue to inspire community and connection beyond college.

Any remaining tickets will be available at the Box Office in Hartwell Hall one hour prior to each performance.

Performances take place Thursday through Saturday, March 22 through 24, at 7:30 p.m. in the Rose L. Strasser Studio in Hartwell Hall, Kenyon Street, on the Brockport campus. Tickets are $17/General, $12/Senior Citizens, Brockport Alumni, Faculty and Staff, and $9/Students. They are available online at http://fineartstix.brockport.edu, by phone at 395-2787, or at the Tower Fine Arts Center Box Office, 180 Holley Street, Brockport.
