Alyson Colwell-Waber, Professor of Dance, presented her work at the statewide conference of the North Carolina Dance Education Organization on February 16 at NC State University, the theme of which was Democracy & Diversity in Dance.
Colwell-Waber's choreography, WALL, is a quartet, performed by four Meredith dancers. It takes its inspiration from a line from Robert Frost's poem, Mending Wall, which states, "...something there is that doesn't love a wall, that wants it down." Colwell-Waber's choreography explores the struggle and despair of physical, political, and psychological barriers. The creative process for this dance was supported, in part, by a Scholarly Productivity Grant from Faculty Development.
