The Lantern BASIMAH'S MIDDLE EASTERN DANCE ENSEMBLE This piece is not your traditional Middle Eastern dance piece. This choreography shows that personality and energy are not dependent on facial expressions.

Cover Me LAUREN BENNETT ’11 SENIOR PROJECT A reflection on some of the subjects that have helped to shape the woman I am and am becoming, these pieces highlight my own experiences with the subjects of addiction, sexuality, and grief. In four movements, this dance piece is a collection that highlights the interactions of its community members and the quotidian burdens they share reminding us to be thoughtful of our words and actions when interacting with others as we are all more alike than we are different in our human experience. The opening and transitional scenes serve to mimic the length of a day and the experiences we carry with us. You’ll notice accent colors that correspond with the first three pieces; providing an outward expression of an inward emotion, these colors help us to remember that everyone carries a heavy burden.

The first scene explores the story of a woman whose family is trying to help her through her addiction by mimicking constructive behavior and providing comfort and support. Throughout the piece, she struggles with being enticed by the addiction and with wanting to be well with her family and friends. The second scene illuminates the subject of sexuality as we follow the love life of a woman who is feeling conflicted with the potential partners she is seeing and the social implications these relationships bear. In the following scene, the subject of grief is named through the story of a woman who mourns her best friend. As the scene unfolds we watch her reconcile with her loss on the day of the funeral where she looses herself in a shared memory of their life together. The final scene is a scene of reconciliation and of compassion. As we revisit the themes of previous scenes, we come together in large movements depicting growth and support toward one another. Personally, these scenes signify the process of moving forward as I make peace with the influence of these subjects in my life and the lives of those who are close to me. --Lauren Bennett ’11
