Annual Spring Dance Presenting Series

In culmination of the yearlong Choreographing Justice Series and Cornell University’s Freedom of Expression Theme Year, PMA is pleased to announce the 2024 Annual Spring Dance Presenting Series.

This year’s series includes the premiere of an evening-length interdisciplinary dance project that reimagines and reclaims the Kiplinger Theatre, entitled This table has been a house in the rain, followed by a walk-through installation of body-based and dance-driven mixed media in the Schwartz Center atrium. All performances are free and open to the public.

Participants in this spring’s dance project laboratory had the opportunity to work with and be mentored by internationally acclaimed choreographers and dance artists: distinguished guests Eiko Otake, Ishmael Houston-Jones, and Keith Hennessy, and faculty Danielle Russo. In response to Poet Laureate Joy Harjo’s Perhaps the World Ends Here, these students generated, directed, and designed an original 75-minute work that builds upon legacies of dance and performance as freedom practice. Participants in PMA 3350 & 4350: Technology & the Moving Body I & II and PMA 1611-601: Rehearsal and Performance produced dance films, stills, and object explorations with faculty Olive Prince, echoing these questions: How can dance and performance be portals for embodied inquiry into power, collaboration, equity, and liberated imagination?

This event is made possible through the generosity and support of Cornell University’s Freedom of Expression Theme Year, Cheryl Whaley and Eric Aboaf, and the Lisa Lu Foundation.
