‘Intricate Glances’ in a senior thesis dance piece
Bates College dance major Colleen Fitzgerald and six other Bates dancers perform her senior thesis piece, “Intricate Glances Will Meet Here,” at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, and 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, at the Edmund S. Muskie Archives, 70 Campus Ave.
The performance is open to the public at no cost. For more information, please call 207-786-6161.
Note: The title of Fitzgerald’s work is incorrect in some published listings. The correct title is “Intricate Glances Will Meet Here.”
In the piece, Fitzgerald of Granby, Conn., explores the fluid integration of Argentine tango and contemporary dance. She draws from the themes of intimate interaction, unpredictable yet mesmerizing movement, and invigorating musicality that are all present within the tango.
Set to music by Astor Piazzolla, a composer renowned for his adaptations of the tango form, the piece breaks the rigid barriers between social and concert dance, audience and performer, foreign and familiar, intimate and public.
