Study For Balkan Dances
with: Gina Alpen, Allyn Walton, Menelaine Valencia, Chelsey Tyler, Charlotte Newman
Music by Maren Lisac
Study for Balkan Dances was first created for Ascension, a program that pairs student dancemakers and composers to collaborate on new works.
Given the nature of Maren's composition, the piece began as a depiction of women's bonding in rural communities -- Balkan or otherwise.
