May 9-11, 2013 in Mitchell 254

Three faculty members of the UWM Dance Department, in collaboration with local composer, Tim Russell, premiere new works considering the simultaneously durable and fleeting qualities of dance. Maria Gillespie investigates liminal states and spaces where identity is mobile and communities are unfixed. Dancers slip between location and identities, detach, reform and soar in a state of impermanence. The street photography of Vivian Maier is the impetus of Dani Kuepper’s “Portrait,” which considers and reconfigures memory and perception. Christina Briggs Winslow's “Double Exposure” uses darkroom lighting to explore imprints, duplication and shadow images. The dancers’ physical imprint and visual residue serve as a metaphor for the central question of the work: what does a performer leave behind when the dance is over?
