RAWdance on Claiming Williams Day

The spirit of Winter Study at Williams–as well as adventure and activism through the arts–is captured here, in the group of dancers culled from a variety of Dance Department ensembles who joined together to learn and perform a work by visiting artists Wendy Rein and Ryan Smith. The duet, Rein and Smith’s response to the Prop 8/same-sex marriage battle in California, was originally performed by a rotating cast of dancers in San Francisco.  Throughout January, the work was restaged on Williams dancers and performed at various times and locations on Claiming Williams Day.
