The CSULB College of the Arts and Department of Dance presented “Beyond the Pale”, a concert of MFA graduate thesis choreography by Nate Hodges, Francesca Jandasek, and Courtney Ozovek, on March 15 - 17, 2018 at the Martha B. Knoebel Dance Theater at California State University, Long Beach. The Immured Woman, a 40-minute long episodic interdisciplinary performance work for 10 dancers, was presented first in the program.
Inspired by the Romanian legend of the Arge? Monastery in which a pregnant woman is immured to make the walls of the monastery stand, The Immured Woman investigated the themes of woman, immortality, creation, and procreation through merging dance, physical theater, visual art, film, text, and sound. The final product included live dance performance, original text and music, an architectural set, film projections of sexualized fruit, and a time-stop animation of an original illuminated musical manuscript to unveil art creation as a metaphor for procreation and procreation as a metaphor for art creation.
