In their respective works, Crawford, DeNies, and Tamura explore the types of relationships that develop from human interaction and dependency, on both an internal and external level. Curley presents a work that is inspired by concepts presented in Kundera's The Unbearable Lightness of Being, while Dodd's work focuses on the rawness of finding inner strength to conquer life's obstacles. In addition to choreographing their own works, each senior will be performing solos commissioned by high profile choreographers such as Jon Bond, Jaclyn K. Walsh, Rachelle Scott, Gregory Dolbashian, and Daisuke Omiya.
