Eastfield College presents 2019 Faculty Dance Concert
The Department of Dance at Eastfield College and The Arts Collective will present the 2019 Faculty Dance Concert, featuring works by Dance Program Coordinator Danielle Georgiou, Faculty Members Roberto Alvarez, Kiera Amison, Claire Augustine Hixson, Martheya Nygaard, Koreyci Santiago, as well as guest artist Jordan Fuchs. Performers include company members from the Danielle Georgiou Dance Group, Muscle Memory Dance Theatre, Jordan Fuchs Dance Company, kNOwBOX dance, and independent dancers from Dallas, Denton, and Fort Worth.
Lead Faculty Member Danielle Georgiou will present a new experimental work of dance theatre for the Danielle Georgiou Dance Group, Without a Body, which questions the intellectualization of the human experience as though there were no body or nobody. Georgiou will be choreographing to an original score by musician Black Taffy—Without a Body marks the sixth collaboration between Georgiou and Black Taffy.
Roberto Alvarez will present a duet entitled Getting Closer to the End that explores an intimate relationship that is nearing its end through heighten moments of contact improvisation. Kiera Amison will present, /əˈdikSH(ə)n/, a collaborative work that explores the journey of addiction, and each dancer will travel an unknown path forward toward recovery. Claire Augustine Hixson will present Found Objects, a collaboration between Augustine Hixson and musician Jamie Reyes. Through dance and percussion, the performers have developed a piece based heavily on improvisation with a primitive aesthetic.
