Denison Dance Students Perform Site-Specific Work on the 'Circle'
Posted: December 11, 2002
The students in Dance Improvisation and Composition of Denison University's department of dance will perform an improvisational work entitled "Circle" at 3, 3:30 and 4 p.m. on Sunday (Dec. 15) in the cul-de-sac on North Mulberry Street. The work features nine Denison students under the direction of Associate Professor of Dance Sandra Mathern-Smith. The cul-de-sac has come to be known as Sorority Circle.
This performance is one in a series of site-specific pieces constructed and performed by students in the Composition/Improvisation class since 1999. Other performances have included "Staring Stairs," a series of performances that took place on various stair steps on the Denison campus in 2000, and last year's "Unearthed," a performance that took place on the dirt road leading into the construction pit dug behind Slayter Union where the new campus buildings now stand.
In the event of inclement weather, the performances will take place at the same times in the upper studio of Doane Dance Building located on Denison's Fine Arts Quad on West College Street.
