This concert explores the theme of “inspiration!” Excerpts from Jose Limon’s Choreographic Offering are an elegant homage to his predecessor and mentor, Doris Humphrey. Sean Curran’s Symbolic Logic, set to the meditative music of Sheila Chandra, is influenced by traditional Indian dancing and martial arts. These and works by other MSU dance faculty members will make this evening a truly inspired event.

Visual Consulting by Joan Pierpoline
Dramaturgy by Stewart Schulman


Heidi Latsky is a choreographer who “beautifully resets preconceptions about bodies and movement” (The New Yorker).  Ideas about beauty are often shaped by convention, but Latsky defies convention by exposing the gorgeous virtuosity of unconventional dancers’ bodies in motion in an edgy, intimate way.  With Triptych, comprised of two live works and a new dance created especially for film, she celebrates the essence of individual dancers through movement, exults in the pure joy of movement in a piece created for herself, as an “older dancer” at 56, dancing in juxtaposition with five younger dancers, and reveals the hidden beauty of all bodies.

Dance for Film on Location at Montclair State University makes its debut with the world premiere of Heidi Latsky's short film. With support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the project will bring three outstanding choreographers and cinematographers to campus to collaborate on the creation of short dance film.
