presents
Glimpses of Another Side  Tallahassee,
FL‐
September
25,
2010
‐
The
Florida
State
University
School
of
Dance
will
present
Glimpses  of Another Side,
a
thesis
concert
featuring
M.F.A.
Candidates,
Anna
Manja
Larcher,
Amy
Mutarelli,
and
 Kathryn
Noletto,
on
October
22
&
23,
2010
at
8:00
p.m.
in
the
Nancy
Smith
Fichter
Dance
Theatre
in
 Montgomery
Hall,
located
on
FSU’s
campus.
The
concert
will
feature
new
choreographic
works
by
Ms.
 Larcher,
Ms.
Mutarelli,
and
Ms.
Noletto
as
well
as
special
contributions
by
faculty
and
guest
artists.

 
 Created
in
1959, Episodes
was
originally
a
twenty‐seven
minute
unique
collaboration
between
Martha
 Graham
and
the
Martha
Graham
Company,
and
George
Balanchine
and
the
NYC
Ballet.
While
Graham’s
 section
has
been
lost
to
the
dance
world,
Balanchine’s
work
remains
and
is
still
in
the
repertory
of
major
 ballet
companies.

FSU
will
feature
a
4
min
section
of
Balanchine’s
choreography
which
consists
of
5
 short
EPISODES.
  The
two
and
a
half
minute
Mazurka
solo
of
Les Sylphides,
directed
by
Sheila
 Humphreys,
showcases
a
unique
European
romantic
ballet
style
that,
although
brief,
requires
much
 stamina
and
strength
in
creating
an
“ethereal”
look.
The
original
role
was
created
on
Tamara
Karsavina
 by
the
choreographer,
Michel
Fokine.

 A
new
work
by
Ms.
Mutarelli, Rossebürt
(A
Walk
Through
the
Red
Light
District,
was
inspired
by
a
trip
to
 Amsterdam.
Set
to
selections
by
the
Beatles,
the
jazz
dance
inspired
choreography,
lighting
and
scenery,
 gives
the
audience
a
glance
into
the
emotionally
vacant
world
of
those
working
in
the
infamous
De
 Wallen
alleyways.

In
antithesis
to
this
somewhat
dark
work
is Iridescence.


A
soft,
beautiful
exploration
 of
fantasy
versus
reality
with
music
from
Jeremy
Limb
and
Zoe
Keating,
and
costumes
designed
and
 created
by
Ms.
Mutarelli.  
 Ms.
Noletto
is
showing
her
diversity
of
movement
styles
and
aesthetics
in
her
contribution
of
five
works.

 One
of
these
works,
Overexposure,
delves
into
the
idea
of
choreography
for
the
body
and
for
the
 camera.

With
four
dancers
on
the
stage,
two
cameras,
and
two
projection
screens,
Ms.
Noletto
invites
 her
audience
to
witness
the
interaction
between
camera
and
dancer.

At
the
other
end
of
the
spectrum
 is
Flor,
a
solo
work
set
by
special
guest
choreographer
Michael
Foley.

In
this
work,
the
audience
will
be
 immersed
in
a
powerful
journey
to
acceptance
and
release.

 Tickets
are
$6
general
admission
and
free
for
FSU
students
with
valid
FSU
ID.
