“Junk Piece!” choreographed by Leslie Bitong, Annie Kim, and Morgan Larson, also known as KILATONG,…an upbeat, athletic, jazz funk piece comprised of an all male cast. Choreographed to portray the image of a car, the dancers embody road signs, traffic, and finally a crash which leaves the car in a junkyard. The music, “i Question Mark” by Wade Robson helps to realize this vision.Read More

Gravity by Corey Campbell May 24, 2010 | CCampbell123 | More on General
I Choreographed "Gravity" in the Fall of 2009 at the University of Arizona. The cast…made of dancers from across the US. They are all dancers with the U of A dance Ensemble. The music is "Gravity" (live) by John Mayer. With "Gravity", I wanted to make a dance that anyone can connect with. We all go through things in life that seem to weigh us down, like gravity. We ALL have a constant relationship with gravity. We can either give into gravity or we can work against gravity. In my piece, gravity represents that thing that is holding us back from what we want. There will always be obstacles when we are reaching for our dreams. We can let the obstacles pile up on top of us or soar over them.Read More
Resistance May 23, 2010 | jacquiwillis | More on Performance
Most of us know of the Holocaust as the systematic, state-sponsored torture and murder of…six million Jews during World War II. My idea for this piece came to me as I was researching for a university paper a few years ago. I was in the deep shelves of a library when I discovered a book of pictures, songs, and poems written by Holocaust victims in ghettoes and concentration camps. For me, art has always been the only escape from difficult moments in life. For members of the Jewish community during the Holocaust, music, dance, and visual art were the only ways to unite against devastating brutality. They had lost everything-- stripped of normal ways to resist such as weapons and communication, torn from their families and friends and deprived of their identities. Amidst such horror, these people were able to find hope in their hearts and calmness in their minds when they united through the arts. This piece is dedicated to both victims and survivors of the Holocaust. Extensive research of the topic was undertaken by both the choreographer and the dancers.
