Students in the spring Princeton Atelier course, “Tap Dance Experiments in Video and Sound/Rhythm: SOIL, SAND BONE” worked with Princeton Arts Fellow Michael J. Love and his collaborators, film-based artist Ariel René Jackson and rhythmanalyst DeForrest Brown, Jr., to develop a new multi-channel video and live performance installation presented on April 18 in the Lewis Arts complex CoLab. The end of semester class showing featured video by Jackson, live performance by the students (choreographed and directed by Love), and an electronic music-based composition by Brown. Throughout the semester, the students engaged with curated readings and media, lectures by Love, Jackson, and Brown, and weekly technique classes and choreography rehearsals.
