Mallory Gittemeier is a BFA candidate who is known to have an awkward elegance about her choreography. Her inspiration from historical and cultural themes such as King Henry IV and East Indian will draw the audience into her movement style. The quirky and percussive, broad yet detailed movements will leave you wanting more.
Shannon Perea a BA candidate uses a post modern aesthetic that explores a variety of qualities from percussive to sustained movements. Her emotional and expressive choreography reflects the internal struggles in life. Perea’s captivating kinetics will invite the audience to appreciate the strong use of timing, levels, and shapes.
BFA candidate Ciara Tunstall’s inspirations lead her to choreograph about the strength and troubles of women in feminist situations. With the use of music composed by Lauryn Hill, Tunstall’s musicality is powerful and the direct yet silky movements are emotionally driven by the environment around her. The intensity and groundedness of her choreography will entangle you into her world.
