Dance concert to feature one-of-a-kind work, Oct. 22
Posted October 12, 2005; 07:02 p.m.
"From the Horse's Mouth: Magical Tales of Real Dancers," a work created by Jamie Cunningham and Tina Croll, will be featured in a performance at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, in the Hagan Dance Studio, 185 Nassau St.
The piece celebrates the "heart and history of dance" with dancers
and choreographers of all ages and traditions performing together and
telling their stories. Each production of "From the Horse's Mouth" is
considered a new "chapter" of the piece and is cast to showcase a
specific group of performers -- no two performances are the same.
The Princeton production will feature 24 students, faculty and alumni telling their personal stories, performing a movement of their own choosing and interacting with other dancers. The stories range from humorous to poignant and reveal personal moments of loss, joy, frustration and triumph.
The concert also will include a performance of Cunningham's solo work, "L'Après-Midi d'un Professeur," danced by New York performer Paul Matteson.
The free event, sponsored by the Program in Theater and Dance, will be followed by a discussion and reception.
