Please join the College of Fine Arts in showing support for the School of Dance’s MFA candidate Gabriel Williams present Moving Together: Lecture Demonstration and Film Exploring Dance Partnering, in partial fulfillment of the Master of Fine Arts Degree in Dance. The evening will address partnering, one of the most enigmatic and intimate aspects of dance technique. This exploration will include lecture and ethnographic research used in the development of a gender-neutral partnering course taught at FSU during the fall 2016 semester by Williams.
The event will also include Contaction, a screendance choreographed, shot, edited, and directed by Gabriel Williams featuring three dancers from the partnering course. The film explores the meaning we find behind physical connection in intimate human relationships, and uses skills taught and practiced in the partnering course as storytelling tools. A question and answer session will conclude the evening.
The event will take place in Nancy Smith Fichter Dance Theatre in Montgomery Hall, located on FSU’s campus at 7:00PM. Admission to the event is free!
