GCU Dance faculty and alumni took to the stage on Thursday, October 27th to kick off the premiere of “Disposable Bodies,” a performance choreographed by Associate Professor Silvana Cardell, Director of the GCU Dance Program.
The cast included GCU Adjunct Professors William Robinsonas and Muyu Ruba, as well as alumni Mackenzie Morris ’16, Tyler Thomas Rivera ’21, and Ama Gora ‘17. Click here for a preview.
The interdisciplinary performance combines movement, sound, and imagery that explores the significance of bodies and poses questions about human and nonhuman relationships such as “Who counts as human,” and “Whose live count as lives.”
Cardell created “Disposable Bodies” as a direct result of receiving the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship in the Creative Arts in Choreography and a $10,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Performances, which are part of the Philadelphia Dance Project annual “Dance Up Close” series, will be held Oct. 27-30 at Taller Puertorriqueno located on 2600 North 5th Street, Philadelphia, Pa. Shows on Thursday, Friday and Saturday begin at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.
