VCU Dance NOW annually features new work by VCU Dance faculty and guest artists, performed by Dance majors. This year, the Department is pleased to present an excerpt from internationally known choreographer Doug Varone's work, DEMOCRACY, in addition to new work by fall visiting artist and former PHILADANCO company member Dawn Marie Bazemore. Additionally, the Department is pleased to present choreography by faculty members Martha Curtis, Robbie Kinter, Autumn Proctor Waddell, Scott Putman, Melanie Richards and Judith Steel.
Dying/IN by fall Artist In Residence Dawn Marie Bazemore is an exploration of community rooted in the understanding that what affects one affects all. This collaborative work addresses issues surrounding pertinent societal concerns and how a community of people, regardless of their differences, can support each other and incite change.
