Traversing the In-Between

Choreographed by Donna Carnow in collaboration with dancers

Performed by Lindsey Jennings, Jenny Oelrich, Leah Wilks, Beth Winegardner

Traversing the In-between is a collaborative choreographic exploration that works to challenge the preconceived expectations of both space and form. Using rhythm and labor as a driving motor, the work researches the physical opportunities multiple pole apparatuses can provide and the ways in which bodies navigate the landscape they create.

Traversing the In-Between was Donna Carnow's senior thesis capstone work at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and was awarded the Wanda M. Nettl Prize for student choreography "in recognition of the excellence of your body of choreographic work". She organized and hosted this site specific performance as part of the senior thesis concert, Borderless.

Performed at Defy Gravity Pole Fitness and Aerial Arts Studio (Champaign, IL)
