What Price Liberty?
springs from the minds of five choreographers inspired by the songs, poetry,
letters and speeches of the Civil War, the World Wars and the Vietnam War. Choreographers
Nolan T’Sani, Joseph Candelaria, Dale Scholl, Eric Vianelle and Lisa Ross
paint the stage with music and movement in a commentary on the emotional and
psychological costs of war.
The evening opens with Tsani’s “Sad and Lonely Weeping,” a
series of dances set to popular tunes from the Civil War. Candelaria’s
“‘Til The Boys Come Home” follows, its dancers backed by music
from World War I with Bela Bartok’s “String Quartet No. 2”
acting as counterpoint. Scholl’s biographic tale of her mother’s
World War II romance is next. “Mission Accomplished” is set to popular
music from the era, including “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” by the Andrews
Sisters and “I’ll Be Seeing You” by Frank Sinatra.
The show closes with a two-part piece by Vianelle and Ross focused on America’s
involvement in Vietnam. Vianelle’s “Too Late My Brother” chronicles
the divisiveness at home, and is set to popular protest tunes. Ross’ “Waist
Deep In The Big Muddy,” set to period rock songs, is inspired by her father’s
experiences as a soldier in Vietnam.
Tickets are $18 general, $16 student and seniors, $15 CSUS students and $8 for
