Choreographed by ChristinaNoelin collaboration with the dancers, and danced by The Creatureto live music and text composed and performed by ChristinaNoeland Aeric Meredith-Goujon, the semi-theatrical dance piece, Belly, is a panoptic review of our treatment of others. Through forced interactions around a dinner table, The Creature's fluctuating proximity juxtaposes closeness and camaraderie with the inability to fully realize empathy for other human beings. Through both comedic and tragic lenses, Belly scopes the depths of white privilege and institutional racism. In the end the question becomes; how can we continue to reorganize our perceptions and differences to reach mutual understanding?

"One of the most impressive and unique elements of Reaves' work is her character development- through the intersection of dance and theater, the characters reveal themselves as three dimensional and complex...interact[ing] with the frankness of youth."
-The Dance Enthusiast

Dancers: Maddie Irmen, Jonathan Matthews, Jasmin Simmons, Amadi Washington
