Florida State School of Dance MFA candidates, Sharon C. Carelock, Ashley Goos, and Veoletta Range, will present The Way We’re Made, in partial fulfillment of the Master of Fine Arts Degree in Dance, on February 27 & 28, 2015 at 8:00 p.m. in the Nancy Smith Fichter Dance Theatre in Montgomery Hall, located on FSU’s main campus. The concert will be a night of inclusive, eclectic, engaging choreography that will spark provocative conversation not only about dance but about the way we’re made.
Starting off the evening is Sharon C. Carelock’s dance theater experience, [Contain(her)]. This multidisciplinary work is an exploration of how Carelock’s family has shaped her into the artist and person she is. The choreography, songs, sounds, text, projections/lighting, and set help convey a rich personal world and all of its characters. Veoletta Range’s three-part work focuses on the relationship between the mind, soul, and body and the tendency of Western cultures to detach their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual states from one another. Range’s work aims to determine if it is possible to reach a fully cognizant, integrated version of one’s self.
Lastly, Ashley Goos’ One in Other questions the function and formality of concert dance with a bare bones production aesthetic. With community as paramount to their work, Goos and her company of dancers have constructed an athletic, exposed, visceral work exploring idiosyncratic humanity that invites the audience to include themselves as they recognize they are one in other.
Tickets for the performance are $8 general admission and $5 for FSU Students with a valid FSU ID. For ticket information, contact the Fine Arts Ticket Office at 850-644-6500, or online at www.tickets.fsu.edu.
