CFA Sponsors Steel Symphony, Gallim Dance Performances
Performances never cease, even during the summer, at Wesleyan’s Center for the Arts. On July 2, students, staff, faculty and community members danced to the island rhythms of the Hartford Steel Symphony in Memorial Chapel.
Founded in 1989, this premier Connecticut steel pan group performed calypso, reggae, pop, classical, and jazz tunes.
On July 11 and 12, Gallim Dance returned to the CFA Theater to perform the New England premiere of Mama Call (2011), and Pupil Suite (2010).
Mama Call investigates how those who have been displaced rescue the idea of “home.” Pupil Suite is performed to the contagious music of Israeli band Balkan Beat Box, the dance is a joyous romp that plays with the madness of imagination and the ecstasy of movement.
