Boggia also performed solos by three emerging choreographers, Marlon Barrios Solano's "In the Very Eye of the Night," Vanessa Justice's "Visitor," and Karl Roger's "Amber Lives in the State of Independence." Boggia's solos dramatized and embodied common emotional states of loneliness, joy, personal power and flights of fancy. (Photos by Intisar Abioto '09)
