Dancing Globally celebrates global connections in dance by presenting the work of an internationally renowned choreographer and of two faculty members. Choreographer Shannon Gillen burst onto the scene in 2010, prolifically creating over 30 works internationally and for her own company Vim Vigor. Her signature choreography combines highly physical movement with cinematic theatricality. Gillian will create a new work for the department. Faculty choreographer Sandra Torijano finds inspiration in the life and bestselling novel (The Island of Lonely Men) of Costa Rican writer José León Sánchez. Missy Beck’s new work plays with the idea of scale, whereby a large group of dancers moves as if one, so becomes ameba-like: it swirls, rises, falls, and morphs into sculptures and continually shifting landscapes.
