“What’s so exciting about this project is that it has been a glimpse into my career,” she said. “After every rehearsal I can’t help but smile and think this is what I’m going to do for the rest of my life. I love it.” 

The production will also feature “True, False, and Floating Ribs” by Mira Hills. This solo work explores the Boolean order of operations that evaluates true or false to determine the response of true. The work reflects the overwhelming nature of determining the difference between true and/or/not false information. Inspired by white lies and disappointment, the work investigates information received and eliminates inappropriate hits that must be scanned before discarding, thus saving time and effort.

The students said choreographing during this pandemic has been both challenging and insightful and that “Mouthful of Marbles” has been their opportunity to showcase how they have overcome and adapted to ever-changing circumstances. 

“This entire experience,” Smith said, “from doing rehearsal on Zoom to deciding what color masks the dancers should wear has shown me the unlimited possibility (and necessity) for art performance as we move into a virtual world.”
