The annual MFA Dance Thesis Concert will feature the premier of new works by MFA Dance candidates Natasha McCandless and Hannah Walter. The production showcases the culmination of the duo’s creative research from their Thesis projects, a requirement for the conferral of the degree Master of Fine Arts. The concert features collaborations with media artists and the student performers.

The Master of Fine Arts in Dance is the equivalent of the PhD in a scholarly discipline and represents the synthesis of years of study and the honing of artistic sensibilities. The MFA Dance Thesis Concert is an opportunity to see new works by the next generation of doers, makers and thinkers in the field.
