SITE DANCE PROJECTS
Lazier explored “Site Dance” and asked, Where can dance happen? What can it do? Students shared site based performance projects built from research into their communities. Each project traces different intersections of personal, cultural, and geographic stories with movement, dance, and performance.
LIVE & SURREAL: LUCY SIRRS
Moss worked with dance student Lucy Sirrs on “Live and Surreal: Lucy Sirrs.” Sirrs presented a video dance project inspired by women’s historic struggle for reproductive rights and the surreal artwork of Martha Rosler. It portrays her exploration of her desires, her pride, and her courage through the lens of her childhood bedroom.
ABOUT PRINCETON DANCE FESTIVAL REIMAGINED
The Program in Dance presented an exciting and innovative, reimagined virtual edition of the annual Princeton Dance Festival featuring six diverse, professional choreographers who created new dances with Princeton students despite the restrictions of the COVID pandemic.
Led by Peter Chu, Francesca Harper, Rebecca Lazier, Dean Moss, Silas Riener, and Olivier Tarpaga, students explored the intersections of dance and multimedia performance, digital animation, filmmaking, site based work, and music. Each evening was a completely different and unique experience followed by a question and answer session with the choreographers.
