Heaven and Hell/Light and Dark
Choreographed and performed by graduate and undergraduate students
Laurie Theater, Spingold Theater Center
This performance will help students delve into the world of visual art, asking, How does an image inspire movement and theater? This choreographed program will draw on images from paintings, from the parallelism in medieval art to the abstract expressionism of contemporary art. The program will include theater and dance pieces that evoke a wide range of styles and themes, as well as stories told with the intricacy of artists' symbolism and composition in paintings. Choreographer Susan Dibble says, "Dance and movement theater is a field of performance that presents a physical world of form, line and color. This program will emphasize lighting design - how it enhances the movement and also creates shadows and angles to bring visual accent and life to the compositions."
Haze and strobe lights will be used during this production.
