Colleen Leonardi will premiere Waveland, a new work that includes Leonardi and Stiles as well as Adriana Durant, Jaclyn Thompson, and Yen-Fang Yu.

Leonardi’s master’s work examines the role of language in the dance-making process. Through choreography, Leonardi aims to explore “choreographic thought” and how ideas follow from a dancing body. Her research extends beyond dance-making to the creation and establishment of an online journal by, for, and about choreographers and dedicated to questions of craft, currently titled

Noelle Stiles will perform two works; a solo entitled MERGE, created in collaboration with Portland, OR-based choreographer Linda K. Johnson and excerpts from Bebe Miller’s seminal 1993 work Nothing Can Happen Only Once. MERGE will include an original score by Matt Jones and Delaney Kelly, as well as sculpture by architecture student Kyle Zaylor. Nothing Can Happen will be performed with dancers Robin Anderson, Adriana Durant, Tahni Holt and Jaclyn Thompson. Stiles’ master’s work has focused on the relationship between dance performance and the senses. Specifically, how the senses contribute to the embodiment of movement material, understanding somatic techniques, the creative process and audience perception of dance. Her master’s work is also concerned with the social and political implications of how the senses are engaged in postmodern dance/performance art. Additionally her research, will address the performer’s perspective and issues of performance through the creation of a website that will serve as a forum on performance.
