October Dance 2024

October Dance 2024 reactivates dance history, honoring masterworks of the past in a contemporary context. The concert features work by José Limón (staged by Associate Professor Roxane d’Orléans Juste), Merce Cunningham (staged by Associate Professor Paige Cunningham Caldarella), as well as a new work for the first-year dance majors that will unpack “The Big Four” founders of modern dance (choreographed by Teaching Assistant Professor Rachel Rizzuto). Undergraduate senior Tessa Olson makes a mainstage debut with a work diving into the history, context, and techniques of “moshing” or “slam-dancing” with a live punk band, offering an expansive update on the dance “canon.”
