Week 2: Shared Programs
Tuesday June 19 @ 8 PM
Karsten Brooks (music) is a performer who uses textural elements rather than traditional harmonic elements to create unique soundscapes.
Neyda Colon-DiMaria is a soon-to-be-graduate of School of The Arts as well as Borinquen Dance Theatre. Her greatest love has been sharing dance and art with the community. Dancer Claire Spenard, incoming SOTA senior, has been a huge inspiration to Neyda's choreographic process. Her solo Spring, performed by Claire Spenard, is about release. The freeing feeling of just moving through times of change, fear, and growth.
Roseanne DiMaria began dancing in her senior year of high school, and then found herself drawn to African and Brazilian Dance. She spent many years traveling, studying, and performing. Her untitled solo represents a new pathway in the dance world and a different part of who she is.
Laurie MacFarlane has performed her choreography and improvisations throughout the US, in Canada and Mexico; in theaters, on the street, in windows, cafes, and even a garage. She is a MuCCC artist and co-coordinator of Dances at MuCCC. Thank you Doug, John, Kevin, Cassandra, Marilyn and all the other MuCCC’ers who have made this space and these dances possible; thank you to Cobblestone Arts Center for ongoing support. Managing Visibility, Time and Space is a new solo. (photo by Annette Dragon)
Ruben T. Ornelas has been dancing for a minute. Thank you to Doug, John, Kevin, Karsten, Laurie, Cielo and all the artists who are participating in this festival; thanks as well to Cobblestone Arts Center. Ruben will be dancing to the poems of Luis Alberto Urrea and popular and traditional Mexican music. (photo by Annette Dragon)
Jose Anthony Ortiz will perform his solo, Consumed by Negativity, as well as a duet made with Claire Spenard, Confined. Confined examines the “prison within a prison” of solitary confinement, in which prisoners are isolated for 22 to 24 hours a day without seeing the outside world. The dance shows not only how this effects the person confined, but also their family members or loved ones. Ortiz and Spenard are SOTA dance students, class of 2019.
