ARCH: A Dance Concert

By Contributing Writer on June 7, 2018

Performed: Spring 2018
Director: Casey Avaunt

ARCH: A Dance Concert showcased original works by contemporary dance students at Colgate. These experimental pieces integrated a variety of styles including hip hop, ballet, and classical Chinese dance. Additionally, the concert featured choreography by Colgate faculty and internationally recognized guest choreographers.

Hyoin Jun premiered his trio, Personal Stories, created by developing gestural movements based on the dancers’ personal stories. Jun is a co-artistic director of Goblin Party, a dance company based in Korea, and winner of the Gold Medal at the Berlin International Dance Competition in Germany (2010).

The final work, Journey Passage, was choreographed by Lai Tsui-shuang, an artist based in Germany and Taiwan. Lai formerly danced with the Wuppertal Tanztheater (Pina Bausch) and now directs her company Lais Creative Dance Theater. In this rigorous new work, Lai considered notions of geographical travel and life transitions.
