Planes of Being
Kathleen (Kat) Hickey, a native to the Chicago area, is a dance artist and researcher. Currently based in West Lafayette, her work has been seen nationally throughout Chicago, Milwaukee, New York City, Minneapolis, San Francisco, Berkeley, Detroit, Indianapolis and internationally in Shanghai and Hangzhou China. Hickey holds a B.A. in Political Science from Purdue University and an M.F.A. in Dance and Performing Arts from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee and currently is a Lecturer in the Division of Dance at Purdue University.
Planes of Being was created in response to the living in the pandemic, considering how people weave in and out of each other’s space without fully realizing the impact of their actions. The quartet comes alive with vigorous movement that involves balance, spirals, and testing the limit of one’s kinesphere.

Behind Blank Eyes

She has studied various styles of dance at the collegiate level, performed in both live and virtual showcases, and have had many opportunities to choreograph. The piece she is presenting, “Behind Blank Eyes” explores her experiences with emotional vulnerability.

"In this work, the use of compressed language is supreme...."....................Good Stage, Nov. 2021
"The audience will never forget the reverberation within the condensed time of 80 minutes"......Theatre, Nov. 2021
"Bite-Sized" focuses on an unstable, hysterical state of being. What happens when the world is quiet, yet late night thoughts are running rampant?

through a glass darkly
Dmitri Peskov is the Chair of the Snow College Dance Department. Most recently, he presented new works at Our Stories Dance Festival produced in Israel and Germany, at All That Dance Film Festival produced in Seoul, Korea as well as at Dance Now in New York, Midwest RAD Fest in Kalamazoo, Only The Lonely Festival in Salt Lake City and Dance on Screen Alabama. His work "through a glass darkly" for the 21 Anniversary Virtual DUMBO DANCE FESTIVAL was originally composed during the early stages of the pandemic and was subsequently influenced by the recent war in Eastern Europe. Thus: a creature crawling in the dark masked and unmasked, a place in the middle of nowhere and a failed search for redemption....
