“exposed” showcases a mixture of contemporary and theatrical works focusing on aspects of humanity through the young eyes of today. The seniors will explore what humanity means to them and how it affects the lives of everyone around them. The concert features new, original works by senior choreographers Darrigan DeMattos, Victoria Sames and Mollie Sharples in collaboration with Hartt School music composition students Mark Ceppetelli, Tobias Haus and Daniel Minogue. In addition to their own choreography, the seniors will be performing solos commissioned by recognized professional choreographers: Adam Barruch, Meghan Bascom, and Autumn Eckman.

“If You Knew You Then” (world premiere)
is a patchwork reconstruction of circumstances evolved from revisiting past behaviors and memories of the dancers’ younger selves. Emerged from themes such as leader and follower, aggression, tension and support, and peer influence, the 60-minute work builds a robust movement landscape where the performers are challenged with negotiating group chemistry and social constructs as they move through a social and solitary terrain. Choreography by Kellie Ann Lynch (in collaboration with the dancers)
