Francesca Harper’s project, Emergence and Discovery: Digital Dance Portraits, facilitates collaborative construction and the development of 10 short, personal films allowing movement, filmmaking, images, text, music, and discovery in natural and industrial habitat to be accessible and serve as inspiration. As dance artists emerge from isolation and reshape their lives, how do they preserve the moment? This existential question will be translated into art.

ABOUT PRINCETON DANCE FESTIVAL REIMAGINED
The Program in Dance presents an exciting and innovative, reimagined virtual edition of the annual Princeton Dance Festival featuring six diverse, professional choreographers who have 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 explore the intersections of dance and multimedia performance, digital animation, filmmaking, site based work, and music. Each evening is a completely different and unique experience followed by a question and answer session with the choreographers.
