Kathryn Butler ’17 Choreographs for Virginia Science Festival
Over the summer Kathryn Butler ’17 worked with seven dancers from Southwest Virginia Ballet (SVB), the pre-professional ballet company she was a member of before college, to choreograph a piece for the Virginia Science Festival. The piece Like Something Out of Science Fiction is a study of dead zones in the oceans through both movement patterns created in collaboration with the dancers and an original sound score including audio from documentaries about dead zones. After the Virginia Science Festival, the piece was selected to be shown in October in a performance including work from the Richmond Ballet.
