Featuring the work of seven student choreographers, this year’s Fall Forward dance showcase skewed more intimate than in past years. Running a brisk 45 minutes with no intermission, the Oberlin dance department’s annual event featured shorter pieces, resulting in a more accessible yet still impactful production.
The dances varied in style but were universally thoughtful and complex, with pieces exploring the trope of “crazy” women, meditating on familial relationships, and harnessing the energy of a block party with choreography inspired by African American music and culture of the ’80s and ’90s.
