Choreography: Ana Hart
Performers: Jordan Foster, Julia Pasquale, Deannie Lauterbach
Lighting: Kristen Bolger

“look !” was created in the fall of 2019. This piece explores the internal dialogue of wanting to be seen by others–about wanting to take and hold space. Through this piece, I investigated body language and human qualities. “look !” was performed in the 2019 Fall Student Dance Concert in the Earlynn J. Miller Theater.

“feet on the ground” was a piece that played with the idea of stars and constellations; specifically the formation of the constellation Pleiades. Through this piece, I explored human connection and a sense of wonder of the unknown. This piece was performed in the 2019 Spring Student Dance Concert in the Earlynn J. Miller Theater.

"The Meeting" 

Choreography: Ana Hart
Performers: Molly Philpott, Lindsey McKim, Julia Pasquale

“The Meeting” is a site-specific work that choreographed as a part a compositional course taught by Cynthia Thompson at James Madison University, Spring 2019. A dramatization of a workplace meeting presented as “The Mindfulness Campaign.” Designed to mess with expectations.

“We were there for The Meeting which never took place.  Instead the piece was actually a side-show that increased our stress level rather than diminish it!  Love that our expectations were messed with. The piece was dynamic and dimensional.  It kept us off balance.”

– Cynthia Thompson (Professor of Dance)
