Watch Peter Chu’s project, Welcome HOME: The Princeton Series, originally presented virtually on Nov. 23, 2020.
The project was a thought-provoking yet playful journey that evoked the viewer’s spatial perception. In this live-streamed performance, scenes changed with precision timing and careful orchestration to transport viewers through viscerally charged worlds. Welcome HOME celebrated raw, curious, and honest communication and featured the work of Princeton students: Becca Berman ’23, Sophie Blue ’21*, Runako Campbell ’21*, Mei Geller ’24, Jonathan Golden ’22*, Sam Grayson ’21*, Laura Haubold ’24, Margaret King ’22*, Liam Lynch ’21*, Gigi Pacheco ’23, Emily Ryu ’21, Camryn Stafford ’23, Ally Wonski ’22*, Thea Zalabak ’21*

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.
