The Cornish Dance Theater Fall 2018 Concert, November 17-18, features the work of guest artist Alicia Mullikin, and Cornish faculty members Alana Isiguen, Wade Madsen, and Michele Miller.
Cornish Dance Theater offers an eclectic mix of styles and original works in the Fall 2018 concert.
This Sophomore Ensemble allows that cohort of students the opportunity to learn from one another and build community within their second-year class, as well as to share a rehearsal and performance experience with a professional choreographer. This year, Professor of Dance Wade Madsen is creating an ensemble piece that explores issues of identity and individuality—couched in a modern urban fairy story (Faeries).
Two dances will feature an original musical composition. Guest choreographer Alicia Mullikin has created Corriente eléctrica. Using Mullikin’s athletic, hard-hitting style, this dance will investigate the many facets of the personality, and how different aspects can be awakened by mob mentality. Faculty member Michele Miller is also working closely with composer and frequent collaborator Nico Tower to create Headlines, which explores some of today’s most pressing issues through visual and physical imagery; using sensual and kinetic movement, as the cast presents their own responses to the impact these issues are having on our integrity as individuals and on humanity as a whole.
Dance’s newest core faculty member, Alana Isiguen, is choreographing her first Cornish Dance Theater work, ma non troppo—a musically-driven contemporary ballet that looks at the ideas of being a woman, inclusion and exclusion, and strength and power.
For those who want to meet the dancers and learn more about each work, the Saturday, November 17, matinee performance will be followed by an informal question and answer period.
