Jubilee Performance - this weekend only

The Coronado School of the Arts (CoSA) dance conservatory (http://cosasandiego.com/about/conservatories/classical-and-contemporary-dance) and Mojalet Dance Collective (http://www.mojalet.com/about-us) are excited to announce their unique collaborative dance performance entitled Jubilee. Audiences are invited to attend the three performances: December 9 or 10 at 7 p.m., and December 11 at 2 p.m. All shows will be held in the Coronado Performing Arts Theater at 650 D Avenue.

 This fruitful collaboration will showcase the artistic directors from each organization setting pieces on the other company. Betzi Roe from CoSA has been re-creating her 1985 anti-war masterpiece Tower of Mothers, inspired by artist Kathe Kollwitz, on Mojalet.  Faith Jensen-Ismay from Mojalet has mounted one of her energetic signature works—Jubilee—on the CoSA dancers. Other program offerings include celebratory dances created by CoSA faculty and Mojalet Dancers.  In keeping with the spirit of collaboration, Roe tried a different approach with the students. 

“Students were asked to collaborate with each other, by class, on the creation of a dance,” she explains. “We’re looking forward to seeing what the Freshmen, Sophomore, Junior and Senior classes have created for this exciting event! It’s sure to be a moving, powerful experience for everyone who has the chance to experience these performances.”

Roe has been the Dance Director at CoSA for 20 years, helping students cross the bridge to creativity in the pursuit of their art. Mojalet is an internationally acclaimed contemporary dance company that brings innovation, joy and passion through artistic collaboration, educational and international outreach, and professional concert dance performances worldwide.
