What a semester we’ve had, from the early ribbon cutting celebrating our new space to our joining the International Theatre Institute, exemplified by five of our students along with Assistant Professor Mallory Prucha performing in the ruins of Ephesus….we have so much to be thankful for that writing this end-of-the-year column is in danger of being unbelievably sappy.
In January, Kim Jones will be leading a residency in the School of Theatre and Dance, creating a new work with the students who will perform in DanceTech 2020 in addition to teaching several masterclasses.
We are now in the thick of the department season, with two shows having opened and more on the way. With so much art and creativity to absorb, it’s beneficial to take a step back and appreciate everyone who makes each production happen. Recently, I had the pleasure of talking with Mariah Solis, the ASM for the upcoming TTU production "The Father."
World-famous dancer Gene Kelly once said that “You dance love, and you dance joy, and you dance dreams.” This statement could not be truer for Texas Tech seniors Rachel Greim and Karson Hood, two of the eight student choreographers who have been working diligently to create this year’s Fall Dance Festival.
