Allie Phinney, Hannah Moss, Nathalie Mostrel in Shoshanna's "Hepcat Hafla"
The faculty-created dances share an accidental theme of crossovers. “Shoshanna always plays in that Middle Eastern crossover area, and this year Linda Maxwell, who has done a lot of study in Mexican Folklorico, is doing something of a crossover with modern Latin jazz,” Butcher said. “Eugene Novotney from our Music faculty introduced me to a score by Christopher Rouse that uses hula rhythms. So my dance is to that music, with a nod to the things I love about traditional hula.”
