Description: Glendale Community College Dance Program is proud to present KINETIC, an examination of the body in motion. The concert will take place December 2-3 at 7:30 PM and December 4 at 2:00 PM in the GCC Performing Arts Center.
KINETIC is produced and directed by GCC Dance Program Director/VERVE Dance Company Artistic Director, Andrea Hashim, with additional choreographic works by GCC Dance Adjunct Faculty, Sarah “Saza” Dimmick and Larisa Perez. Choreography by Michael Williams from the University of Arizona’s School of Dance and GCC Dance Major, Kayley Thompson, will also debut during KINETIC. Guest artists joining the performances are the Phoenix-based professional dance companies, Dulce Dance Company and EPIK Dance Company, and Phoenix-based professional dance artist, Christina Sheldon-Anderson. Rounding out the evening includes live music accompanied by GCC Guitar Major, Alex Resnick, GCC Music Faculty, Dr. Christina Eide, and veteran cellist, Richard Bock, who spent 24 seasons as the principal cellist with the Phoenix Symphony.
KINETIC explores the movement of energy as dancers exemplify kinesthetic choreography. Choreographic works includes “December”, a solo for a female dancer accompanied by pianist Dr. Christina Eide, featuring a scene where snow will fall during the dance. “Bon Appetit” utilizes a colorful pallet of memories and impressions of a trip to Paris, choreographer Michael Williams recalls his fascination with the fashion and food of this famous city. Through stylized movement and choreographic staging, Williams paints the stage implementing techniques of an impressionist painter, weaving a visual portrait of remembered moments to savor.
KINETIC is presented in the spirit of dance. Andrea Hashim follows the legacy of past GCC Dance Program Director, Lenna DeMarco. Two Lenna DeMarco Dance Scholarships will be awarded during this special weekend of dance. Hashim promises surprises and an electrifying energy surrounding KIENTIC.
