Accumulation Formal by Ellen Bartel
Combining movement and contemporary acoustic chamber music, ten dancers and five musicians take the stage and reveal a dynamic connection to humanity.

Dervish by Aly DelCueto
Inspired by the idea of whirling dervish, one that possesses abundant/frenzied energy, DelCueto’s work is an exploration of feminine power, combat, strength, survival, exhaustion, struggle, and athleticism.

Is there a connection between the seismic activity of earthquakes and the electrical activity in the brain in gran mal seizures? This piece explores the personal experience of watching a loved one having a seizures and the seismic activity of the brain.

Questionable Conclusions by Chelsea Pierce
An investigation of an endless search for something that seemed clear, but is quickly lost and distant; something that fizzles unknowingly, or abruptly comes to life again.

Untitled by Mackenzie Taylor
A peek into the complexities of human life and how the network can be broken down to reveal something more primal.

Untitled by Morgan Taylor
Testing the question of “How far can you manipulate something until it begins to lose its original purpose?”, Taylor delves into the limits of form and how far it can be changed while retaining its earliest idea.
