CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Oct. 25, 2007 —   The Department of Theatre & Dance proudly presents Southeast’s Annual Fall Dance Concert Student Showcase in the new Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall located in the Cultural Arts Center at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus, on Nov. 8-10.  The concert will include approximately 13 pieces that vary in dance style, mood and movement quality.

Each performance will feature numerous dance students showcasing their strong choreographic and performance capabilities.  Two of the pieces will present different approaches to relationships.  “Hopes to Come” by junior Desmond Gray explores the relationships between people within a community and how those interactions can affect the quality of their lives.  “Enough” by senior Rissa Crozier depicts a very tense and potentially harmful relationship.

Another work, “The Big Apple Cabaret,” choreographed by senior Jessie Ladd, explores the use of pedestrian movement and how that movement can be manipulated and distorted to become something completely new.  The work also incorporates a lot of interesting partnering and lifts. 

The Fall Dance Concert will also showcase the work of design/technology students Jason Penrod and Sara Eaton who are responsible for designing the lights and sound for the concert.  This concert is a true collaboration between the students within the department, allowing them the opportunity to learn from one another.
