Study For Balkan Dances

8 minutes

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.
