Introducing Mrs. Steven Baxter: Dance and Gender

Event, Performing Arts Series, Dance, Women's History Month


Discussion of traditional gender roles.  

Performance by AU Dance Majors, choreographed by Professor Orion Duckstein. This is a rich and beautiful dance performance that is a biting critique of paternalism. The dancers interchangeably embrace and throw off traditional female roles (in US society) through their movements. The dancers portray the tensions women face in living up to their expected gender roles and the bravery and troublesomeness of breaking free of them.  

Discussion will include the choreographer and dancers.  

Sponsored by the the Adelphi Dance Department and Collaboration Project.
