Israeli dance legend, Rina Schenfeld, was recently on campus to teach master classes for KSU dance students. Described as "one of the most sumptuous modern dancers of her day," by The New York Times, Schenfeld is known for incorporating a range of physical objects - threads, sticks, poles, rubber, strips, cubes and fabrics – in her choreography.
Schenfeld's artist residency is part of "Off the Edge," a weeklong festival of cutting-edge performances presented by Georgia State's Rialto Center, Kennesaw State University and gloATL, Jan. 23-28.
"Off the Edge" concludes the week with the International Guest Artist Series at the Rialto Center. Ivan Pulinkala, director of the KSU Program in Dance and Lauri Stallings, KSU dance artist-in-residence, were the two Atlanta choreographers whose work was presented on the Rialto main stage.
