    <ong>Carleton’s Semaphore Repertory Dance Company, to perform in concert

    The Semaphore Repertory Dance Company, comprised of advanced Carleton dance students, will perform at 8 p.m. nightly on Friday, November 13 and Saturday, Nov. 14 in the Arena Theater. The performance will feature two professionally choreographed pieces by Paula Mann of Time Track Productions and Matthew Janczewski of Arena Dances. Other pieces were choreographed by faculty director Judith Howard and Semaphore members Katie Forsberg ’10 (Brookfield, Ill.) and Elizabeth Tan ’10 (Singapore). Student director Annie Rees ’10 (Columbia, Mo.) believes this term’s Semaphore concert delivers a unique show and that “audiences will appreciate the diversity in choreography and aesthetic between pieces, as well as a wonderful variety of professional and student choreography.” This event is free and open to the public; no reservations are needed.

    Directed by faculty members Jane Shockley and Judith Howard, Semaphore Dance Company operates within a variety of technical and philosophical dance frameworks, emphasizing the dancer as a “tool” in art-making. In addition to continued dance training during the academic year, the group delivers an annual concert, performs in the Twin Cities and collaborates with other dance groups in the American College Dance Festival. Along with Forsberg, Rees and Tan, Semaphore dancers also include seniors Robin Viele (Shoreview, Minn.), Claire Brookmeyer (Baltimore, Md.), and Bill White (Kaneohe, Hawaii); junior Kai Knutson (Bloomington, Minn.); and sophomores Emily Ban (Bronx, N.Y.), Elise Erickson (Shoreview, Minn.), Hannah Lucal (Brookline, Mass.), and Rebecca Feldman (Wilmette, Ill.).

    The Arena Theater is located on First and Nevada Streets in Northfield on the Carleton College campus. For more information regarding the concert, please contact Danette DeMann in the Department of Theater and Dance at (507) 222-4301.
