2018 NW ACDA National Selections
University of Montana (2017)
Tsiambwom Akuchu (graduate student)
Every^Man (Alright) is an evocative and stirring piece, representative of the African American experience from slavery to the present. The work is deeply embodied, solid in its canonical foundation, eminently relevant, and critically necessary; an injection of survival.
Snow College (2017)
Choreography and text: Dmitri Peskov (faculty)
fleeting things is a scapel of a dance, incisive in its approach to its narrative, flittingly delicate in its performance, a siphoning down of the whorl of our contemporary national experience of race.
University of Utah (2017)
Choreographer: Nichele Van Portfleet (graduate student)
Stranger Kin disregards the aesthetics of cis-genders in an exhaustive, visceral exploration, and irresistibly lays bare questions of human intimacy, relativity, and power.
Congratulations to the following schools for being selected to participate in the 2018 NW Gala Concert!
