Abstract

In Flight is a presentation of an original modern dance work by senior dance major Erin McNulty. Performed in the 2014 Choreography Showcase, In Flight explores the anxiety and excitement people feel when they are on the verge of something new. The choreographer found the inspiration for this piece during the commute to the first day of her summer job as the community relations intern at Boston’s Urbanity Dance. Through a combination of traditional and creative research, the choreographer developed this modern dance work into a poetic expression of the varied emotions people feel when figuring out what lies directly ahead of them, including where and how they will fit in. This presentation will consist of a live performance and discussion of the choreographer’s process, followed by questions from the audience for the choreographer and the dancers.
