Audition Information

Two Dance Stories
Created by Susan Dibble and Ensemble
Directed by Susan Dibble

This celebratory and soulful dance performance tells two unique stories through movement. Students work side by side with professional performers under the direction of Professor Susan Dibble, a renowned resident choreographer and master teacher for Shakespeare & Company, among numerous other theaters. Inspired by the poetry of W.H. Auden, one piece illustrates how people are propelled into movement through the rhythms and sounds of time, and asks what happens when the ticking hands of the clock stop. The other piece revolves around a small shop that hatches a plan to heal people through the ghost costumes it creates.
