Samantha Crilly, Dance
47 Reasons (Working Title)
I am currently in the process of working on my piece for the Dance Majors Concert, as a part of my education in achieving my Bachelors of Arts in Dance. After completing all of the necessary courses to be eligible for choreographing for the concert, I am excited and honored to be able to present some of my work. After taking a collaborative class, combining DXArts and Dance Majors, I was inspired to use technology as a part of my dance research. I have decided to use film and projection as a part of my work this year. So, with the help of a few DXArts students, Nathan Wade and Gaelen Sayres, I am learning more about the use of film and technology in dance. I would like to film different aspects of dance that are rarely discussed or studied. I have researched parkour, as well as color guard as two of the main subjects that I would like to pursue. I would like to film these subjects in their appropriate locations for their activity, and for the color guard subjects, I would need to use a studio with appropriate lighting. I am hoping to capture the people that do these specific art forms very accurately.
