The Red and Black: "UGA dance students showcase semester-long project in Young Choreographer’s Series"


"The Young Choreographer’s Series gave Claire Peoples, a senior dance major from Roswell, Georgia, the opportunity to choreograph her first full-length group piece last year. Titled “feathered,” the piece consisted of five dancers and one featured soloist. Peoples’ artistic vision for the piece was to display a person’s experience going through the five stages of grief. 

“Even if [the audience] doesn’t understand what your inspiration is, they can tell what was made with intention,” Peoples said. 

This year, Peoples choreographed the piece “and it will be found again.” The piece was the show’s opener, and began with an empty stage and a cloud of mist. The dancers trickled in as the music begins, and their movements became more powerful with the group lifting a dancer at various crescendos in the music.

In comparison to last year’s show Peoples said there was a lot more collaboration between her and her dancers during the choreography process."
