School of Dance Modern Dance MFA candidates are wandering with purpose in upcoming production of "Coddiwomple"

December 02 2021

The School of Dance at the University of Utah presents a dance concert of thesis works from Modern Dance MFA candidates Jessica Boone, Virginia Broyles, and Austin Hardy. 

“We have been working hard alongside our casts of performers to create an evening of energetic ensembles, shifting images, and whimsical curiosities that will linger after you’ve left the theater,” said Broyles.

Something Whole and Unfinished is a collaborative work of dance and art directed by Jessica Boone. The performers shape a new piece during each performance. A colorful world is crafted on stage where impulse leads dancers through choreography and where the performers leave their mark on stage and on each other. 

Virginia Broyles immerses you into mischievous surrealism, dream logic, and playfully uncanny moments in Hand-stitched Electric. Made in collaboration with the performers and an 8-foot white box, this work is best when taken with a side of “Why not?”. 

Austin Hardy and dancers present Cyber Synesthesia, a piece that examines digital social platforms in which metaphysical spaces have real life consequences. This work aims to reflect on being an individual in a group and the connectivity and isolation we experience from social platforms. #viral #dance #goodsoup
