Stanford alumni 'bringin' it home' for annual dance concert
The 12th annual dance concert featuring alumni works is scheduled for 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 8, in Roble Dance Studio.
A $10 donation ($5 for students and seniors) is requested at the door. The event, "Stanford, Dancing: Bringin' It Home," helps to fund the Mary Edith Clifford Alumni Choreography Award, which is presented each year to a Stanford graduate by the Dance Division and the Friends of Dance at Stanford. This year's winner, who will be announced at the concert, will go on to develop a dance piece for the division's Spring Quarter concert.
"Bringin' It Home" will include original choreography, a documentary film and performances by past and recent graduates of the Farm, many of whom remain professionally involved in dance as teachers, performers and choreographers.
Modern dancers Lily Wang, Rhonda Martyn and Noelle Morris each will present their work; Danse Libre will perform its vintage couple dancing; and Monica Shen and Ryan Knotts will present their newly formed Knotts Dance Company.
In addition, Kristin Pichaske, a recent graduate of the Graduate Program in Documentary Film and Video, will screen her documentary, Guguleto Ballet, about bringing ballet to South Africa's poor.
