This collaborative performance presents three interpretations of Jane Hilberry’s poem Sand. The project began when Hilberry, a professor English at Colorado College and award-winning poet, met composer Gabriel Globus-Hoenich at an artist residency at the Banff Center in Alberta, Canada. During the residency, Globus-Hoenich created the jazz composition that forms the nexus of the current collaboration. "Variations on “Sand” includes an expressive movement piece for two dancers created by Shawn Womack, Associate Professor of Dance at Colorado College, and a video installation created by Patrizia Herminjard, Artist-in-Residence and Lecturer in Dance at Colorado College. Variations on “Sand” is presented in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Colorado College’s Summer Music Festival.
