Department of Theater and Dance Presents ‘Embodied Voices: Honoring Judy Dworin’

Fall Dance Production in the Goodwin Theater at Trinity’s Austin Arts Center on Friday, December 1, at 7:30 p.m.

​Hartford, Connecticut, December 1, 2017 – The Trinity College Department of Theater and Dance is presenting “Embodied Voices: Honoring Judy Dworin” as its fall dance production on Friday, December 1, 2017, at 7:30 p.m. in the Goodwin Theater at Trinitys Austin Arts Center. The program features the Judy Dworin Performance Project and Trinity College student dancers.

The Judy Dworin Performance Project was founded in 1989 and the professional Performance Ensemble seeks to spark awareness and inspire change through innovative dance/theater performances that examine issues of our time. This performance will showcase pieces from previous years that continue to inspire, give voice to those reluctant or not allowed to speak, and educate about unknown pieces of history that call for people to work together. The diverse selection of dances, through the lens of women, will take the audience to South America in the 1970s and to current day America, and examine what life is like for individuals in and out of prison.

This fall dance performance honors Trinity College Professor of Theater and Dance Emerita Judy Dworin, a 1970 alumna of Trinity. Dworin established the Dance Program, co-founded the Trinity/La MaMa Performing Arts Semester in New York City, and chaired the Department of Theater and Dance at Trinity for many years.

The Trinity student dancers in this performance are Katie Haynes ’21, Rachel Fox ’21, Claire Quigley ’18, and Samantha McAward ’21.

Admission to the performance is free, though tickets are required. For tickets and more information, please call the Austin Arts Center Box Office at (860) 297-2199.
