Spring dance concert an emotional journey

Excerpt from the Register-Mail:

It is almost always entertaining to watch dancers move together in the same space on a stage, but the choreographers featured in “Journeys” have added another level of emotional depth to their pieces.

The main stage dance production at Knox College this spring, “Journeys” incorporates the work of Knox faculty, students and a professional dance company into the show, which will be performed at 7:30 p.m. tonight through Saturday in Harbach Theatre in Ford Center for the Fine Arts at the college.

“I feel like this show in particular is very emotional,” said Megan Hall, a Knox senior and a choreographer for the show. “The dances have real solid ideas behind them.”

Hall’s choreography was inspired by several different relationships she has had over the past few years, including those with her best friends and her mother. Each of the four dancers has her own character: one who is always dependent on others, an angst-ridden teenager, a manipulator and a nurturer. A version of the dance was performed earlier this year, and Hall said some audience members were brought to tears.
