Shared MFA Thesis Dance Concert: Brown and Opare

In Graham Brown’s Apple Falling, the lives of seven individuals intersect as they each interact with their familial histories, musing over the stories and characters that have, over the generations, helped shape who they are and who they will become. Can we control how far the apple falls from the tree?

Kwame Opare uses pop iconic imagery and popular music in Triumph of Disruption: A Movement to Subvert, a funky, hip and engagingly fantastical journey through time and space. The choreographer entertains the concept of disruption as a method to alleviate the problems facing a particular group of young people — an artful attempt to show, through dance, iconic pop imagery and music, an epidemic of failure in America’s methods of educating its youth.

Event begins at 8:00PM
