Bi-Co Fall Student Dance Concert

Last night was the Bi-Co Fall Student Dance Concert, and I could not be more proud of all the talented dancers/choreographers/lighting/sound/stage managers and thankful for the support of the audience. According to the co-directors Joy and Kyra, this show had the most pieces, the most variety, and the biggest crowd yet (even the balcony was filled!).

Come to the Bi-Co Fall Student Dance Concert!

The months of hard practice are finally coming to an end. The Bi-Co Fall Student Dance Concert is this Saturday, November 21th 8pm at Haverford College’s Marshall Auditorium! The FSDC is a platform for independent student choreographers and dance groups within the Bi-Co to showcase their latest works. This year, there are over 20 different pieces!

I’ve been participating since last year. I love performing whenever there’s a chance and would have participated my first year as well, but I missed the deadline to join. Last year, I was in 3 dances. I adapted choreography from the K-Pop dance “What’s Your Name” by 4Minute for the Choom Boom K-Pop Dance Club and participated as a dancer for 2 of my friend Joy’s pieces. This year, I am only in 2 pieces: Choom Boom and Joy’s piece. I would usually be leading a Choom Boom piece as well, but that’s all the time I could commit this year. I wish I had more time to dance in more pieces.

This was a very big deal because the performance is part of the Bryn Mawr College Performing Arts Series Trisha Brown: In the New Body, “a yearlong festival of the innovative choreographer’s artistry” through performances, classes, lectures, and exhibition.

Trisha Brown: (Re)framing collaboration

As a treat to myself for finishing not 1, but 2 midterms today, I took the time to visit the Bryn Mawr Canaday gallery for the exhibition on the art of Trisha Brown and her collaborators.
unnamed-1Trisha Brown: In the Body
is a yearlong festival of exhibition, performances, classes, and lectures hosted by a collaboration between Bryn Mawr College Performing Arts Series and The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage. (Additional partners include Pennsylvania Ballet, The Barnes Foundation, Drexel, and WHYY). I must have been living under a rock because I actually did not know this project was such a big deal until I did some research on my own. The exhibit was curated by Academic Liaison for the Art and Artifact Collections Matthew Feliz and Academic Liaison for Art and Artifacts/Visiting Lecturer Brian Wallace. I would like to help spread news of this project to the undergraduate community, so I’m blogging about it here.
