Fall MaDaCol Performance Opening Soon!

The Dance department at Case Western Reserve University is pleased to announce this fall’s production of MaDaCol (Mather Dance Collective). Performances will feature new dance works by graduate students, Karina Browne and Danielle Dowler, as well as the capstone project by senior undergraduate student, Keely Saslow.

MaDaCol is a student organization, which offers a creative and important outlet for CWRU students (undergraduate and graduate), faculty, staff and Greater Cleveland community members. This year, 60 dancers from these diverse backgrounds will be participating in the production.

Danielle Dowler, a second year graduate student at Mather Dance Center and CWRU undergraduate alumna, will be premiering a new work titled Su-Z-Q. The dance piece is set on MaDaCol members to multiple selections by the band Caravan Palace. Taking inspiration from the dances of the 1920′s-1940′s, Su-Z-Q is light-hearted and upbeat with explorations of spatial calligraphy and musicality.

Dr. Night Mare is a new work choreographed by senior undergraduate dance and biology major, Keely Saslow. 20 MaDaCol performers will be dancing to music by Acoustica Alarm Will Sound and Aphex Twin in this work where a student falls asleep in the library and “awakens” in a nightmare.

Second year graduate student Karina Browne will be premiering a new work titled Victory of the Feet to the Vitamin String Quartet’s covers of Queen music. This work is set during a dodgeball game between rival teams, the jocks and the nerds. Will brains prove victorious over brawn?

Tickets are $5 for general admission and may be purchased at Mather Dance Center prior to each performance. Early arrival is suggested because seating fills quickly. No reservations and no advance sales will be made.
