Choreographer Julian Barnett will lead the Fall 2012 Repertory Class. "In the past few years Mr. Barnett has begun spooling out choreography, constructing elegant, spare works in which stillness and violence (emotional, but also of bucking spines and whiplash bodies) share equal, uneasy time."

Onye Ozuzu is a dance administrator, performing artist, choreographer, educator and researcher currently in her first year as Chair of the Dance Department at Columbia College Chicago. Previous to this she was Associate Chair, Director of Dance in the Department of Theatre and Dance at the University of Colorado, Boulder. While there, her work was notable for its balance of visionary and practical progress in the arenas of curricular, artistic, and community development of diversity, collaboration and interdisciplinary performance arts. She herself has been actively making and performing work since 1997. Her work has been seen nationally and internationally at The Joyce Soho (Manhattan, NY), Kaay Fecc Festival Des Tous les Danses (Dakar, Senegal), La Festival del Caribe (Santiago, Cuba), Lisner Auditorium (Washington DC), McKenna Museum of African American Art (New Orleans, LA), as well as many anonymous site-specific locations around the world. She was a recipient of the Innovative Seed Grant, University of Colorado’s most prestigious research grant, for her ethnographic research project ADADIA African Drum and Dance in America: the Oral History Archive. She will be returning to EarthDance Workshop and Retreat Center and teaching at Bates Dance Festival where she continues to expand work as an AfroModern contemporary technique teacher and work on Technology of the Circle, a group improvisation and interdisciplinary performance process. Her most recent choreographic presentation, And They Lynched him on a Tree, a multidisciplinary collaborative effort, premiered in February 2011 at the ATLAS Black Box Theatre, in Boulder, CO: a center for the intersection of art, science and technology.
Hunter College has postponed the planned FALL 2012 launch of its new MFA/Dance degree program.
Aiming to engage a diverse, talented and motivated student body destined to become leaders in the field, the 60-credit curriculum integrates the rigorous study of art making and performance with a diverse array of aesthetics, cultural perspectives, and pedagogy. The program will be built around core Hunter full-time and part-time faculty, prominent guest artists, strong and ongoing relationships with curators, theaters and other NYC resources. Cross-disciplinary and specialized interests are a significant feature of the program curriculum: our aim is to merge professional-level artistic practice with invigorating critical perspectives in a supportive and challenging community of artist/thinkers/educators prepared for the future of the field.
