DaNCe2U[1] promotes dialogue around the rise of power, leadership, and societal division using Martha Graham’s activist Steps in the Street. This presentation focuses on virtual adaptation and demonstration of the rehearsal process. The panel will discuss the COVID influenced staging process, collaboration between BalletMet 2 and OSU Dance Department and working with the Graham Company. The presentation will focus on some of the phrases deconstructed that reflect the activism and social commentary in the world at the time of the work’s creation with some demonstration of movement phrases.
