This production is a collection of individual works and styles from guest choreographers Kora Radella and Nick Carlisle along with UA dance faculty Kara Stewart and Cydney Spohn.
Guest Choreographer Kora Radella is an Assistant Professor of Dance at Kenyon College and is the choreographer and co-artistic director of BOOMERANG and Double-Edge Dance (DED). Radella’s portrayal of “awkward grace” will be shown in her new work “The Constellations We Make,” inspired by the writings of Rebecca Solnit.
This piece will be paired with the Violin Sonata in D Minor,“La Folia” by Arcangelo Corelli. Guest Choreographer Nick Carlisle, dance faculty from Lake Erie College, will use Terry Riley’s G-Song, for his modern dance work “Trendencies.”
Cydney Spohn’s contemporary ballet, “Sanctuary,” includes a composition by UA Music faculty Daniel McCarthy and will feature percussionist Colin Dees and flautist Kelley Wilson.
Inspired by the musical spirit of Arcangelo Corelli, Kara Stewart uses traditional classical ballet movement vocabulary and structure to bring the composer’s robust allegro movements to life in her piece entitled, “Corelli Coterie.”
