This graduate dance concert explored the human experience through dance. It included themes from the darker sides of society, such as Japanese Internment, to the more intimate moments such as child birth. Lighting supported these themes through the use of drained out color for the darker work, to very vibrant and jubilant color for the more intimate, happy moments.
