(ACDA) American College Dance Association @ Wichita State University / by Jesse Factor

Marthagany: The Spectre-Acle garnered a standing ovation at the ACDA informal concert on Friday, March 31st, to my delight. I love continuing to perform this work and learning more about what I made and how viewers experience it. 

I also taught a class on Graham's fall on 10 counts, in which I incorporated Ellen Graff's When your Heart Falls: The Drama of Descent in the Martha Graham's technique and theater. A packed class quickly learned the sitting fall, standing fall, and a short phrase from 1936's "Celebration" incorporating elements of this particular fall. The students in the class were so phenomenal, committing fully to big dancing and taking risks. I left inspired and renewed.
