Samantha Blake Goodman and Kethya Chey, MFA students in dance, perform original pieces related to current Fowler exhibitions. First, Blake Goodman’s dance work “Gira que Gira” embodies the dualities that define Sinful Saints and Saintly Sinners at the Margins of the Americas, such as with the Brazilian deity Esu. Accompanied by live Afro-Brazilian percussion, Blake Goodman invokes the essence of Esu who is both feared and worshiped the messenger and the trickster guarding the crossroads. Next, Chey mixes traditional Cambodian Khmer dance with contemporary movement in “Beneath,” an intimate piece inspired by Earth Matters and its messages of how the earth supports and is in contact with humans’ everyday lives.
