Flutist Jacques Saint-Cyr (Mendelssohn Club artist) is integrated into the piece through movement, spatial patterns and direct interaction with dancers.
Wild Spirit is set to African music and inspired by African-American artists vision of womanhood.
Warriors, inspired by a work by Hawking Bolden, was created through research in African dances. The music, by Art Blakey, is a fusion of modern jazz and African rhythms.
The program will also feature two pieces from the Young Choreographers project. These new pieces of original choreography were created this spring as part of a Without Shoes Modern Dance Company project with local high school students.
