DANCE CONCERT FEATURES STUDENT’S CHOREOGRAPHY
      HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University music and dramatic arts department's "Encore" series will present “Reflections,” a multi-media dance concert, April 22 at the Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts.
      Composed of dance, visual art, film and music, “Reflections” will bring Southeastern dance, art and journalism students together with alumni, faculty and guest artists from across the country. Premiering at the concert will be two original art films directed by Southeastern dance coordinator Dana Brewer-Plazinic and Tova Beck-Friedman. Friedman is a New York-based visual artist who will be making a two-week guest appearance thanks to a grant Brewer-Plazinic received from the Southeastern College of Arts and Sciences. 
      Set in the cemeteries of New Orleans, the films also boast the creative input of Southeastern alumnus Nathalie Croix of Brazil, Patience Impson of Baton Rouge and Lesley Kernan of Prairieville; Southeastern students LaDazha Moll of Gonzales and Kristen Johnson of Oakdale; Michele Cudd of Ponchatoula; and guest dancer Miceala Marchand of Baton Rouge.
      Also featured in “Reflections” will be footage and stills shot by four Southeastern art students -- Ken Newton and Caesandra Seawell of Hammond, Caleb Lunt of Slidell, Kaela Sanchez of Ponchatoula and Michael Trahan of New Iberia -- and journalism student Troy S. Huizar of Hammond.
      Choreographers and dancers for the night’s performance are Moll; Impson; Marchand; Jarrod Cashe of Hammond; Martinique Perkins, Hannah Schuster and Mekenzie Dixon of Baton Rouge; Thurman Fields of Derrider; alumni Leslie Comeaux of Violet; and dance faculty Greta Sharp and Brewer-Plazinic. Brewer-Plazinic is also the concert’s artistic director.
      “Reflections” is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets are $5 general admission, and $3 for non-Southeastern students and senior citizens. Admission is free for Southeastern students. Tickets may only be purchased one hour before curtain time in the lobby of the Columbia Theatre. For more information, call 985-549-5254.
