Notes: The Five College Dance Department, in collaboration with the Amherst College Department of Theater and Dance, presents an evening of dance featuring contributions from faculty, guest artists, and dancers across all five campuses, including Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company's Story/Time (excerpt), an intricate collage of dance, live music and personal narratives orchestrated in new configurations for each performance by chance procedures, and Nudge, a new work from Swiss-Canadian choreographer Kinsun Chan (Guest Artist/Mount Holyoke College), which draws inspiration from the musical compositions of Canadian cellist and composer Julia Kent to create a large ensemble dance notable for its feline dynamism and striking visual designs. The concert also features choreography by Deborah Goffe (Assistant Professor/Hampshire College), Leslie Frye Maietta (Visiting Artist/UMass), Marilyn Sylla (Five College Lecturer in Dance), and Angie Hauser (Assistant Professor/Smith College), as well as video installations by Rodger Blum (Professor/Smith College) and Jim Coleman (Professor/Mount Holyoke College).
