Also on the program, a world premier collaboration with Professor Stevinson-Nollet and Robert Black, Professor of Double Bass at The Hartt School, and member of the renowned Bang on a Can All Stars. Themes range from the exploration of femininity, age, misogyny and empowerment.
Stevinson-Nollet said of the piece, "Coming to the Surface has been a solo dance project in the making for the past two years. I have collected works from some of the countries most innovative and cutting edge choreographers to submerge myself in their creative processes while also cultivating a solo concert. The experiences from this project has refreshed my approach to my technique and composition classes, choreographic process, and renewed my passion for dance. The project will culminate with a short tour of performances locally, nationally and internationally.”
