Alejandro Choreographs Thunderous Light Project

Tesla Place, a “thunderous light project” by Pedro Alejandro, associate professor of dance, was performed May 10 and 11 on the Wesleyan campus. The dance, light and sound-based performance began outside Crowell Concert Hall and ended in the Center for the Arts Courtyard. The theme focused on the inventor/scientist Nikola Tesla (1856-1943).

Tesla Place was created in collaboration with Marcela Oteiza, adjunct assistant professor of theater and faculty fellow; Paul Boylan; Sal Privitera, audio-visual technician; Adam Tinkle; graduate student Rod O’Connor; Dante Brown ’09; Brittany Delany ’09; Aaron Freedman ’10; Spencer Garrod ’09; Shayna Keller ’09; and Samantha Sherman ’09.

Tesla Place was funded by a Mellon Foundation grant and the Office of the Dean of Arts and Humanities.
