Locally Grown Dance 2021
Atelier 320, directed by Jumay Chu, Senior Lecturer in PMA, will present its latest work in the spring Locally Grown Dance, PMA’s annual faculty concert. The nine dancers choreographed solos and group configurations exploring how we see dance, how we find meaning in it.
Working with a set design of six plexiglass panels designed by Jason Simms, Asssistant Professor in PMA, the dancers will question the perception and ambiguity, the reality and what is elided, of what we see and experience as Jason’s lighting design illuminates, reflects, and doubles the dancing on and through the plexiglass panels. Annie Lewandowski, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Music, performs with Thomas Bonvalet in their band Powerdove, finding the haunting surfaces and elided spaces to discover coveted relationships. The collaborative work of the dancers will be filmed by Steven Blasberg, cinematographer in PMA, and edited by Jeffrey Palmer, Assistant Professor in PMA.
Locally Grown Dance, consisting of the work of Atelier 320 and the work of Byron Suber, Senior Lecturer in Dance, will video stream live April 1-4, 2021 at 7:30pm.
