Amanda Edgar, current BFA candidate and former guest choreographer for the Spring 2009 BFA concert, reflects the human condition and the beautiful nature of, what some may consider, abnormal mental difficulties. She creates vivid gestural imagery and distinct movement vocabularies; Amanda's choreography draws audiences into her world.
Dodie Yount is a BFA candidate and a successful local dance and gymnastics teacher. She will present a dance theatre piece that will challenge conventions around race. As viewers are asked to question the difficult realities of human behavior, both those that are enchanting and repulsive, they will witness the contradictions our society holds both in the past and present.
The struggle of surviving the loss of a loved one is explored by Kait Coats. Kait is a current BFA candidate and former guest choreographer for the Spring 2009 BFA concert. Her piece is a sequential and technical presentation of the grieving process. Her movement style is captivating in its physicality as well as theatrical content.
Tara W. F. Cacciatore is a current BFA candidate, whose recent choreography was selected to be performed in the Spring 2009 Gala performance at The American College Dance Festival, presents a contemporary ballet inspired by manifestations darkness and light. Her distinct dance vocabulary has been called "kinesthetically pleasing and to have wonderfully contrasting moments of arrest and release."
"WOE VS VEXATION" promises to be an engaging and thought provoking evening of dance. There will unquestionably be something for everyone. Please join us and support four graduating students of the Webster University Dance Program as they premier four works. This is an evening you don't want to miss!
