Wagner College Presents The Dance Project; Looking For The Remote

Each year Wagner College presents a showcase of dance work meant to showcase different styles of dance and gain appreciation towards the art form in an annual piece they call The Dance Project.

This year’s Dance Project is much different however from one in previous years past. This years Dance Project is titled Looking for the Remote. The piece is conceived and executed by Wagner’s first artist in residence and world renown performer Claire Porter. The piece explores space and movement and physical and the metaphysical. When asked about the piece Porter had the following to say.

“In life, we’re always in search of the little things – a book, a set of keys, a remote control – but we’re never taught to look for the bigger, more important things like trust, patience and loyalty.”

Guy Klucevsek, a staten island native and artist well known collaborated with Porter to create original music for the piece which is used. Very Exciting!

As previously mentioned, the piece is directed/choreographed and conceived by Claire Porter. The set design is by Matt Sydney and lighting is designed by Alison Hall. The costume design is by Concetta Raineri.
