Original dance explores students' reactions to authority.
Katelyn Bulluck ’10 presented, “A Silent Majority” at Randolph College’s Symposium for Artists & Scholars on April 18, 2009.
Katelyn choreographed the dance and oversaw its production with her faculty mentor, Kelly Dudley, adjunct instructor in dance, while an undergraduate student at Randolph College.
An abstract of piece follows...
My dance piece explores students’ attitudes toward people in authority over them and how they (the students) are treated. This piece considers how students, deprived of a voice in a decision-making process, will fight to reclaim their voices and reestablish their power. The inspiration for the piece is the choreographer’s observations of people in situations outside of their control. Shadow photos of the dancers doing poses from the piece serve as a backdrop for the dance. The music is “Investigation Suite” by John M. Keane from the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation soundtrack. After the piece, the dancers, choreographer, lighting designer, and photographer will have a talk-back session.
The Student Symposium of Artists and Scholars provides Randolph College students from all classes and disciplines the opportunity to present the results of their research, scholarship, and creative work to the entire College community and beyond.
The two-day symposium, modeled after a typical academic conference, features oral presentations of student research, readings of creative work, musical performances, and exhibitions of student artwork. The symposium also includes a poster session, reception and a keynote address from a noteworthy academic speaker.
