MANCC celebrates the live performance of DaEun Jung’s latest work “NORRI” on March 22, 23, and 24th at the Center for the Arts at Keyenta, in Southern Utah.

A post-premiere residency at MANCC January 9-20, 2024 with Jung, four dancers, Pansori singer Melody Shim, composer Daniel Corral and embedded writer Ajani Brannum enabled further exploration around the interplay between dancers and musicians, visual/scenic elements and recording of dancers’ vocal parts and Shim’s Pansori singing. “NORRI”, which when utilizing the South Korean alphabet means play, brings together Korean folk opera, original electronic beats, irregular folk rhythms, Hangul (Korean alphabet system), and chance operation to deconstruct, reinterpret and transform classical Korean dance.

During their recent residency, Legacy Artist Sara Shelton Mann and collaborator Jesse Zaritt conducted two movement-based workshops for students, faculty and community. These improvisational workshops, based on Mann’s teaching methodologies and pedagogic philosophy that have been in development over her 60-year career as a choreographer, performer and teacher, gave Mann the opportunity to test specific ideas to be included in her soon to be published manuscript “Moving Alchemy.”

MANCC is deeply saddened by the passing of living legacy artist Dan Wagoner, a cherished artist and a part of our history. In 2003, as Florida State University's Montgomery Hall underwent renovations and MANCC took shape, then-Chair of the FSU Department of Dance, Elizabeth Patenaude, extended a pivotal residency invitation to Wagoner. He focused his residency on re-staging "Dolly Sods: After the Flood" and exploring documentation techniques with faculty member Tim Glenn. This collaborative effort laid the groundwork for future documentation initiatives at MANCC.

Wagoner's legacy extends far beyond this singular residency. Wagoner was invited to join the School of Dance faculty in 2005 and spent almost ten years of his career in Mongomery Hall inspiring students and making work. He will be missed.
