Obstacle: The Site
May 13 2013
For fifteen years, MFA Design has been pushing the boundaries of what constitutes design, and Maira Kalman’s 2013 New York Stories class was no exception. On April 3rd in Studio Four at City Center, the first year students presented a dance performance called “Obstacle.” This was the culmination of a nine week journey into the unknown under the guidance of Kalman and choreographer John Heginbotham. Even thought the majority of us had no prior dance experience whatsoever, with Maira’s vision and John’s expertise, we were able to design something that the audience found beautiful and even moving. It was a wonderful lesson in collaboration and trust, and we all had a lot of fun along the way. See the website here.
