In the spirit of spring, Ithaca College’s dance concert “Flight of the Heart” will bring forth a tangible touch of nature with the creation of an original costume. This costume entails a handcrafted tree attached to a specially designed dress that a dancer will wear in the performance of a modern dance piece. Choreographed by Department of Theatre Arts assistant professor Lindsay Gilmour, the dance piece, titled “Tiny Rebellions”, is an exploration of the tiny rebellions humans face, such as myth over logic, and femininity over masculinity, in an attempt to create balance instead of control.
Ithaca College Theatre will present a dance concert featuring three pieces of original choreography by Department of Theatre Arts faculty members Lindsay Gilmour, Roy Lightner and Amy Walker O’Brien. Performances will run in the Hoerner Theatre in Dillingham Center on March 24, 26, 27 and 28 at 8 p.m., with 2 p.m. matinees offered on March 28 and 29.
