Can’t see it live, but want a virutal ticket to watch on demand after Nov 26th?  

Hold emerged from reflecting on what is personal but also universal to each of us.  The pandemic has brought on a shared global experience that is unprecedented.  The work looks at how this upheaval has allowed us to de-center our own narratives and realize our impact on the larger communities around us.  Set to Samuel Barber’s “Adagio for Strings,” Hold leaves space for doubt and hope simultaneously.  The piece asks what it means to not defeat something, but instead transform ourselves for the better because it remains.  Hold orients us inside this present moment with attuned awareness of our humanity and greater connections.

Graduate students of SUNY Brockport’s Dance Department are premiering Pruitt’s newest duet, Intersections in the upcoming faculty concert alongside work by Jenise Anthony, James Hansen & Mariah Maloney

Intersections was developed by asking the dancers to create movement responses that answered 16 questions about themselves.  These movement “answers” were crafted into a duet with the goal of creating human connection through the body’s exploration of lived experiences and memories.

DANSCORE is the perfect opportunity to see works created by nationally and internationally renowned faculty members,  whom Rochester’s City Newspaper calls some of the “top names” in the field. The diverse choreographic voices highlight the talented dancers and proves — as City also notes — SUNY Brockport is an “incubator for regional and national dance talent.”
