By the Light of Imperfection - DancEstrella


Performance by DancEstrella called "By the Light of Imperfection"

This event is free of charge, masks are not required by strongly encourages. Seating in the PAC (Performing Arts Center) is limited and is first come first served.

Estrella Mountain Community College’s student company, DancEstrella, will present four performances of By the Light of Imperfection. This program features group dances by majors in
Choreography 2; collaborative choreography by students in Dance Performance classes, and two full company works, Assemblage by Artistic Director Janaea Lyn McAlee and Making Space by Guest Choreographer and EMCC and ASU alumni Jazmin Parker.

The dances choreographed for this production investigate ideas about beauty, perfection and the opportunity to find value in what is not always seen as such. Professor McAlee explains “The themes we drew from included honoring a beauty in what is perceived as flawed or
broken, imperfect or transforming. Embracing the awareness that perfection does not exist, nor is there a way of being that is unchanging can be liberating and empowering.”
