What goes into a choreographic work?
Come to hear the nitty-gritty.

Featured choreographers will lead you from the inception to realization, through concept and background detail, through the research and creative processes, and the images and the sounds and design elements that led to a particular work.  The presentations include a Q & A session followed by an informal reception.
