Boyer College of Music and Dance, Dance Department presents

Dance Alumni Showcase 2019

Friday and Saturday, October 18 & 19 in Conwell Dance Theater

Temple University’s Dance Department is pleased to announce this year’s
annual Dance Alumni Showcase featuring work by Anne-Marie Mulgrew and Megan
Mizanty. Mulgrew’s Philadelphia-based company will perform a re-imagined
version of "Strange Dreams: 30 Years Later" and Mizanty will premiere her
new work, "Laura," a collaboration with Sienna Martz
<https://www.instagram.com/siennamartz.art/>, a fiber arts graduate of
Tyler School of Art and Architecture. The shared program will be presented
in Conwell Dance Theater at 1801 N. Broad St, 5th Floor on Friday and
Saturday, October 18 and 19 at 7:30 pm.

Conceived and directed by Artistic Director Anne-Marie Mulgrew, "Strange
Dreams: 30 Years Later" is a multi-media production for nine dancers which
features inventive choreography, colorful props, striking projections, a
portable set, a genre-defying sound score and inflatable costumes. "Strange
Dreams" tackles dream-like states -the sensations, memories, colors and
sounds in a non-linear stream of consciousness format. Dreams appear,
disappear, and continue to haunt the dreamer who questions the logic of it

New York-based dance company MizantyMoves Dance premieres its newest work, "
Laura <http://www.mizantymoves.com>." Inspired by prime-time television
crime dramas from the 90s and beyond, this quartet imagines the lives and
afterlives of four fictional women. The non-linear narrative utilizes
movement and live vocal performances, exploring violence against women in
popular American media, the consumption of normalized violence in
contemporary culture and The Disposable Woman.

Anne-Marie Mulgrew is the Founder/Artistic Director of ANNE-MARIE MULGREW
AND DANCERS CO., (AMM & DCO), an experimental modern dance company founded
in 1986. For the company, she has created more than 71 major works that
have appeared on traditional concert stages, festivals, alternative venues,
unusual places, museums and film in the United States and Canada.
Anne-Marie holds a BS in Ed and an MFA in Dance from Temple University
where she was adjunct faculty for five years.

Megan Mizanty is an internationally commissioned dancer, choreographer and
educator. She is an Assistant Professor of Dance at Wilson College, where
she serves as assistant director of the MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts. She
is a Dance in Leadership Scholarship Recipient from Dance/USA, and a recent
a Pennsylvania Council on the Arts grant recipient.
