Featuring senior thesis dance pieces by:

Julia Cost "In Passing"

"In Passing" is an exploration of passages of people through time and space and the coexistence of struggle and support, individuality and interdependency, and boldness and sensitivity within  a community. This project, however, is as much about experimentation with choreographic process and developing ways of approaching work as it is about creating a product for the stage.

Sydney Freggiaro "Femme du Marais de la Nuit"

"Femme du Marais de la Nuit" examines the post-modern evolution of femininity in dance.  The work is simultaneously a critique of the choreographer's own process and aesthetic based on her research of early post-modern dance.
