Design Statement

Swamp Dance Fest! is a four week intensive that is intended for pre-professional dancers ages of 18 and above. After Image, choreographed by JoAnna Mendl Shaw, is an experimental work to address the shared territory between dance-making and drawing. Throughout the piece the dancers are using graphite to draw on the paper on the floor. Rescue, choreographed by Duane Cyrus, used a method for creating performance material called Theatre of Movement that was developed by Duane Cyrus. The dancers used movement, voice, and technology to create the piece performed.
