The Harvard Dance Project in “WHAT MOVES YOU?”
Presented by Harvard Dance Program (OFA) and The Department of Music
“WHAT MOVES YOU?” is a unique collaboration between three distinct choreographic voices: Francesca Harper, Jill Johnson, and Mario Zambrano. Together, they have collaborated with The Harvard Dance Project (HDP) dancers and associate HDP student artists, composed of singers, poets, musicians, and writers, to create a work that is both responding to and asking the governing question: “What moves you?” This question was posed to the cast to create movement phrases and choreographic structure, and resulted in a series of personal stories adapted through motion. The work also invites audience members to think about the same question: “What moves you?” – whether considering a large topic or something poignantly small.
