About 3 Master of Fine Arts candidates, Ellen Bartel, Chell Parkins and Alvin Rangel, take the stage in the Department of Theatre and Dance’s inaugural M.F.A. dance concert March 8 and 9.
3 includes Ellen Bartel’s Watch The Gap, a site-inspired contemporary dance about New York’s Jamaica Queens train station. Using video and sounds from the station combined with original music by Adam Sultan, the performers movements translate the experience of train station to the stage. Lilith, a new work conceived and performed by Chell Parkins, is an intermedia dance theatre piece that takes place in the not so distant future. And, Alvin Rangel presents Tango Vesre, a dance expressing an evolution of male tango practice in Argentina through duets by Rangel and Alejandro Cervera.
