The Swarthmore Project and the Dance Program will present Meredith Rainey’s “Waiting Room” as part of the Window on the Work series on Sunday, November 20th at 7PM in the Lang Performing Arts Center Troy Dance LAB (LPAC 2). Please join us!
“Waiting Room” is set to the three selections from Franz Schubert’s Schwanengesang and explores the ideas of memory and mortality through the physicality of dance. Mortality is the physical reality all people face with their spirituality, intelligence, but most of all their bodies.
