Graduating Modern MFA Students Present "Triumvirate"

December 01 2019

On December 5th, 6th, and 7th, in their final year of study at the University of Utah, the graduate students in the Modern Dance Masters of Fine Arts Program, invite you to attend "Triumvirate," their thesis concert in the Marriott Center for Dance’s Hayes Christensen Theater.

This culminating performance reveals the diverse creative research undertaken by the graduating students over the past three years.

In "Take This With You," Alexandra Barbier presents an interactive solo and group installation performance, which aims to disrupt the existing traditional relationships and roles between dance audiences and artists. 

"Parachute Princess" is an intimate, interdisciplinary duet by E’lise Jumes. This research uses movement and sound to find what emerges when memory is used to create knowledge -- then resulting in realizations and constructed narratives of a multi-faceted self.

Joanna Lees presents "B E C O M I N G," which portrays a dynamic group of sixteen women manifesting power in the body by pushing the limits of their physical capacities. The work explores how empowerment can be achieved through superheroine narratives, concepts, themes, and physical ideas.

"Triumvirate" runs approximately 90 minutes long, and is free and open to the public.
Performance times include:
Thurs. 12/5 @ 5:30pm
Fri. 12/6 @ 7:30pm
Sat. 12/7 @ 7:30pm.
