Moving Between Tongues: Choreographing Translation Promo Image
April 14, 2024 (4–5:30 p.m.)Mitchell Hall, Studio 254

Department of Dance Student Undergraduate Research Fellows (SURF) Lia Smith-Redmann, Libby Steckmesser, and Rae Zimmerli collaborate with faculty mentor Maria Gillespie to present an informal showing of their choreographic research.  Moving Between Tongues developed from choreographic research exploring meaning making in the pre and post lingual forms of dance. The dancers share the products of their aesthetic practice as a nexus in which auto-ethnography, embodied storytelling, and interdisciplinary performance practice reveal how translation is an embodied and ongoing practice.

An informal panel discussion on the creative process, methods of translation, and collaboration will follow the performance.

Music performances by Barry Paul Clark and Xylia Sophia-Conn.
