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.

PRINCETON DANCE FESTIVAL REIMAGINED: Led by PETER CHU
Peter Chu’s project, Welcome HOME: The Princeton Series, is a thought-provoking yet playful journey that evokes the viewer’s spatial perception. In this live-streamed performance, scenes change with precision timing and careful orchestration to transport viewers through viscerally charged worlds.
