Please join Obermann Graduate Institute alum Jessica Anthony in her thesis dance, The Lyric I, performed in the Bennett/ Anthony MFA Concert on April 18, 19 and 20 at 8pm at Space Place Theater in North Hall. The Lyric I was created out of and in response to her experience of taking eight undergraduate dancers to facilitate a nine-week dance workshop to girls at the Iowa Juvenile Home and collaborating with them to create and perform a dance there.  Seven of the ten dancers performing in The Lyric she co-facilitated the dance workshop at IJH and contributed their written and danced reflections to the process of creating this dance.
