MFA Spring Dance Concert - Hauntings and Invoking Justice

  • Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center

Thursday, March 10th and Friday, March 11th at 7:30pm in the Kogod Theater at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, University of Maryland College Park. 

Hauntings
By Julia Smith

Hauntings is a collection of portraits exploring what it means to live and dance after half a life. Themes of love, beauty, grief and nostalgia emerge as Smith and her fellow artists depict characters wrestling with the complexities of intimate relationships, impermanence and mortality. The dances draw inspiration from the music and poetry of Chopin, Debussy, Charles Trenet, Scriabin, Richter, John Keats, Sylvia Plath, Ted Hughes, W.B Yeats and Robert Lowell.

Invoking Justice
By Curtis Stedge

Invoking Justice is a gritty and macabre cross-cultural survey of magical justice, in our shared mythology, that places the human collective on trial, as it explores the testimony that lies at the very depths of the human soul.
