Not Long Now, a senior choreography showcase

Not Long Now, a senior choreography showcase by Emma Blue Russo, opened today at Stuart Theatre. The show is impressive on many counts: the eight dance numbers are set entirely to the music of James Blake and it is relatively unprecedented to give a student full reign of Stuart.

The first act explores themes of “urgency, coping, and healing through movement” while the second presents a series of dances drawn from influences on Russo’s creative identity as a choreographer. From inspired choreography to talented performers, aided by music that draws on elements of funk and electro-pop, the show is a cohesive production of dance, light, and sound.
