Todd 361 Series

Release date: December 02, 2011

December 2-3, 7:30 PM; December 4, 3 PM

Todd 361 Series Premiere Season at Todd Dance Studio Theatre features a collection of works created by Fiona Cansino, Kelsey Hobbs, Charlie Markham, and Sarah Soule of the advanced choreography class at Goucher College. This evening, entitled Todd 361 Series will include both group and solo works by these young, up and coming choreographers.

Fiona Cansino's work is inspired by the rhythmical and melodic qualities of Bobby McFerrin's music, and the idea of things we do when we do not think we are being watched.

Kelsey Hobbs' work, which incorporates a mixture of music, sound clips, and text, pokes fun at the overwhelming abundance of frivolous products advertised today to satisfy particular consumer "needs."

Charlie Markham's work is inspired by the Oral History of Holocaust Class offered at Goucher College. He intends to explore complex events that various people go through and the effects they have on an individual's outlook.

Sarah Soule's work explores judgement and how it relates to the opposing sides of community versus isolation. She investigates whether the judgement from others is what causes isolation or if self-judgement is the greater cause for feelings of aloneness.

The works, set on Goucher College dancers, were created over the course of the Fall 2011 semester as part of the 361 Advanced Choreography Class. The works will be presented in a series of concerts open to public at Goucher College's Todd Studio Theater on December 2-4. There will be a book drive at the December 4th matinee performance, and $1 will be taken off the price of tickets for those who bring in children's books (ages 5 - 10). Reservations can be made at www.goucher.edu/tickets

$8 general admission, $6 students and senior citizens. Tickets available at the door.
