Description: 

The Saint Mary's College Dance Company proudly presents Unveiling, the fall dance concert created by nine senior choreographers from the Class of 2023, along with guest artist and alumna Micah Sallid. This collective dance concert shares investigations of time, women’s rights, familial warfare, religious oppression, marginalization, and many more innovative concepts.

The Saint Mary’s College Dance Company is excited to offer both in-person and live-streamed performance during this fall’s concert Unveiling. This showcase is produced, performed and choreographed by the Dance Program’s Senior Class of 2023: Faith Alexis, Sofia Amador, Trinity R Boykin, Rochelle Demelo, Sev Fisher, Andrio Jordan Fong, Olivia Rose Grimes, Alexa Janezell, Elena Prisco, and features a new work by guest artist and alumna Micah SallidUnveiling is a collective dance show that is motivated by the idea of finding grounding and balance within the dance community amidst readjusting from the Covid-19 pandemic. Returning to campus this fall and reflecting on the shared experiences of the last few years, these emerging choreographers are exploring concepts of familial warfare, changing love, women’s rights, time, self divinity, power within marginalization, religious oppression, homesickness, and the instability of dance spaces.

“I am honored and excited to be on this journey of choreographic exploration with this current group of SMC seniors! All of them are attacking their work with vigor and deep inquiry. They are on a fearless endeavor of making their voices heard in a world that needs very much to listen and take notice!” Andrew Merrell, Dance Faculty and Senior Project Advisor.

The creative team for Unveiling includes Lighting Design by Matthew Cohen, Andrio Jordan Fong, and Joanne Houston, production support by Dance and Music Production Manager Danielle Ferguson, Live Stream Production by David Gaylord, and the Stage Manager Joanne Houston with the support of the technical crew. Each of the dances being presented has redefined the choreographic process, production and performance while strictly adhering to COVID-19 safety protocols set by the CDC and Saint Mary’s College.
