Grand Valley President Thomas J. Haas was one of several area celebrities photographed on “the sofa” as part of a promotional campaign for the Grand Rapids Ballet’s production of “Movemedia.” An Experience Grand Rapids website story gives a nod to Grand Valley’s “impressive artistic achievements.” View photo and story here.
The “Movemedia” concert series consists of performances by GRBC dancers of contemporary works by six guest choreographers. Shawn T Bible, assistant professor of dance, and Calin Radulescu, affiliate professor of dance and former GRBC professional dancer, choreographed pieces for the two-concert series held on March 23-24 and April 6-7. Bible’s “why we write” was included in the March concert and Radulescu’s “Reflections” will be performed in April. Dale Schriemer, professor of voice, also performs in a piece set by Patricia Parker, GRBC artistic director, along with pianist James Barnett in the live music for “Rueckert Song.”
