Moving Images

March 27, 2012


The Mo(u)rning, (2010). Choreography by Elizabeth Shea. For more information, see http://www.elizabethsheadance.com/.

Work created, directed, and mentored by Elizabeth Shea is a familiar sight around the IU Bloomington campus. An accomplished choreographer, Shea is clinical associate professor of kinesiology and director of the Contemporary Dance at IU Bloomington. During Bloomington’s annual Arts Week Everywhere celebration, students from the Contemporary Dance Program will present Moving Images. The students areĀ  in their second semester of compositional study and are mentored by Elizabeth Shea.

The program grew out of the students’ study of abstracting works of visual art. Students selected works from the 20th-century collection at the IU Art Museum and created duets expressing the physical, cognitive, and emotive characteristics of the works. Their performances will take place in the Art Museum Atrium, and the students will be available to discuss their approaches.

Moving Images takes place Tuesday, April 3, 2012, 1-2:30 PM in the IU Art Museum on the IU Bloomington campus.

Arts Week Everywhere 2012 , which launches on April 1, places a special focus on IU Bloomington students. This year, students from IU’s Master of Arts Administration program — led by School of Public and Environmental Affairs visiting lecturer Al Lyons — are coordinating AWE, which is sponsored by the Office of the Provost.

A comprehensive list of events, times and venues is available on the new AWE website, artsweek.indiana.edu. Information is also available on an AWE blog, Facebook page and Twitter, using the hashtag #IUAWE. A new mobile app is also available for download on the AWE website.
