Dance Faculty to Present Commissioned Work at Arts and Technology Symposium

Assistant professor of Dance Gregory King and adjunct dance professor Megan Young have been invited to create one of three commissioned works for the Ammerman Center for Arts and Technology's 16th Biennial Symposium at Connecticut College February 15 - 17, 2018.

Each commissioned work is asked to incorporate the symposium theme, “Intersections”, and combine at least one area of creative expression with a major technology component: whether as subject matter, medium, tool or environment. King and Young have been granted a week-long funded residency at Connecticut College which includes presentations, classes, student involvement, campus interaction and performance or presentation of the completed work at the symposium.

King and Young, along with co-collaborator Angela Davis Fegan, will present "Nuclear Winter," an interactive sculpture installation with live performance interventions, utilizing digital surveillance to retaliate against any perceived “assault” on whiteness in the space. Together with hand-made brick structures and paper objects, the system will create a microcosm representing our current political climate.
