Jodi Leigh Allen's work is about
"a person trying to have a career and
a love interest at the same time."
Allen looked at how her own desire
for a career in dance moved her
away from the people she cared

about for this work.
"Inside Life," the name'of her
work, features six women University
dancers as well as Allen. The
dancers use both soft and strong
movements. The final section is
physical, with her dancers dancing
on chairs, Allen's piece attempts to
make the viewer wonder how the
dancer is able to do what they are
The underground dance communi-
ty has influenced Allen. While living
in New York, she went to raves and
observed the dance that was taking
place. She uses this experience to
help her create movements and
dances. The music accompanying
"Inside Life" has been arranged and
composed by Christopher Peck. The
score will offer a pulse similar to
that in techno music. "I appreciate
the uniqueness of (underground
dance). I like new and exciting
things, especially things that are
hard," Allen said.
Melissa Beck will present two
works, one of which examines the
life of Lee Harvey Oswald's mother.
"Oswald's Mother" was inspired by
an interview Beck heard on National
Public Radio with Oswald's mother.
Beck was fascinated with the situa-
tion, in particular the rationalization
Marguerite Oswald had to do in
order to make it okay for herself and
her son. The solo will be performed
by Beck to seven minutes of the
interview. "Her voice is very musi-
cal and I saw the dance," Beck said
of her choice to use only Oswald's

voice as music.
In her group piece, Beck used
Rodin sculptures. The work is bro-
ken into three sections: The beaut
of the sculpture's athletic muscl
riding, and unrequited love. Ballet's
lines and fluidity have heavily influ-
enced Beck's style; she has brought
the sensibility of modern and the
use of pedestrian into these works.

wanted to create a landscape of dif-
ferent people without a single focal
point. He used a novel, a movie,
online site for collage artwork, and a
tumbling Coke can as inspiration.
Dunn wanted his piece to be based
in the human experience. "I like the
idea that you can't see all the shapes
at the same"time, no matter how fast
the eye moves," said Dunn.
Dunn took one psychological
landscape and put it onto ten differ-
ent dancers. He chose the color blue
for costuming because of its many
different shades that can evoke d
ferent reactions. He worked wi
cellist Katri Ervamaa and Mark
Kirschenman to create music for his
solo. The collaboration went so well
that the musicians were able to mir-
