Emory Dance Company's Fall Concert to Explore Facets of Humanity, 11/21-23

The Emory Dance Company experiments with new viewpoints in contemporary dance in their fall concert, November 21 - 23 in the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts. This concert showcases the choreography of Emory faculty members Anna Leo, Lori Teague and George Staib, as well as guest artists Kristin O'Neal from the University of Florida and Emily Johnson, a current Schwartz Artist in Residence at Emory and director of Catalyst Dance in Minneapolis.

Faculty and guest artists work collaboratively with student dancers to develop new movement vocabularies through the choreographic process. Leo's "A Murmuration of Starlings" is abstractly inspired by the comings and goings of birds, exploring the way birds, or people, move in various pairings, groupings and regroupings. "Slope," choreographed by Teague to music by Philip Glass, celebrates the duality of life as continuous and transitional on one hand and disruptive on the other. In doing so, Teague's piece reflects on human resiliency and the transformative power of movement. Staib's "Nectar" is driven by the desperate need we have for connection, support and reliability from other human beings through a strong use of the duet form.

The Emory Dance Company presents its fall concert series Nov. 21-23, 2013 at 8 p.m. with an additional 2 p.m. matinee on Nov. 23 in the Schwartz Center Dance Studio, 1700 North Decatur Road.
