Moving Company In Concert

  • Videos
Hathaway Brown's Moving Company in concert features eight intriguing dance performances choreographed by Upper School students and faculty. Each piece is as diverse as each choreographer and many address the pandemic and themes of personal discovery and resiliency.
 

Pray

Choreographer: University School student James Brooks

Pray highlights and honors the things we use to keep pushing even when it feels like there is no end in sight.
 
Music by Sam Smith and Timbaland. Lighting design and video editing by Technical Theatre DirectorT. Paul Lowry.

Angel

Choreographer: Cami Fielding ’22

“You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone, gone, gone” is a quote Cami’s mom uses and it has stuck with her for a while and inspired this dance. 

Music by Ed Sheeran. Lighting design and video editing by Technical Theatre DirectorT. Paul Lowry.

My Broken Remedy

Choreographer: Caroline Jung ’21

This project combines Caroline’s interests of dance, violin, and videography. The piece reflects this year’s daily desperation for a remedy from our inner mental war which has been continuously masked. There are attempts to connect, but as someone who has experienced complete remote learning for a year, Caroline is reminded daily that she, in fact, is alone in the fight for her remedies. My Broken Remedy will receive a graduation designation from the Fellowships in Creative Arts. 

Music by Anson Seabra (violin cover arrangement by Caroline Jung). Videography by Sarah Goraya ’21. Video design and editing by Caroline Jung. 

The Silence Continues to Spread 

Choreographer: Sarah Scott ’21

This is the first version of a piece by Sarah Scott ’21 which has been double cast and is presented two times in the concert. This first version is titled The Silence Continues to Spread, and the second is titled I’ve Never Been Home ’Til Now, I Think. The costumes and lighting are different in each version, as well as the performers, but the movement and music remain the same. Sarah invites you to notice the slight difference in intention that comes from these changes. 

Music by David Lanz. Lighting design and video editing by Technical Theatre DirectorT. Paul Lowry.

connecting to audio 

Choreographer: Emma Gerber ’21

This piece explores the process of finding new ways to connect during isolation, which is fitting because the choreography was taught and rehearsed entirely over Zoom. Though the pandemic has limited our previously-existing avenues of connection, it has also given us the opportunity to find new and creative ways to continue our relationships. 

Music by Loopy Luke. Video design and editing by Emma Gerber.

Movement II: Reality 

Choreographer: Kathleen Guo ’22

This work in progress is part of a two-year Strnad Fellowship in Creativity project. The final piece will premiere in the 2022 Hathaway Brown Moving Company concert and will consist of three movements that explore the idea of humans and their relationship with dreams and reality. This piece reflects on the fears and doubts that people face on a daily basis. This is especially timely during the pandemic as more of us have used our dreams and imaginations as an escape.

I’ve Never Been Home ’Til Now, I Think 

Choreographer: Sarah Scott ’21

This is the second version of a piece by Sarah Scott ’21 which has been double cast and is presented two times in the concert. This second version is titled I’ve Never Been Home ’Til Now, I Think, and the first version is titled The Silence Continues to Spread. The costumes and lighting is different in each version, as well as the performers, but the movement and music remain the same.

Keep the Light On
