Maria Hassabi wins a 2016 Bessie Award for Outstanding Choreography for PLASTIC, at the Museum of Modern Art, New York City; Congratulations Maria!

RoseAnne was one of more than a dozen performers populating the Museum of Modern Art in New York City in Feb/March 2016 for Maria Hassabi's PLASTIC.

The two-hour solo performed by RoseAnne and others took place on and around a sofa located in the Museum's Atrium.  Ten different dancers shared the solo and performed continuously for a month during the Museum's open hours.  Other dancers performed across the Atrium's walkway and up and down two staircases during open hours six days out of each week. 

Above: the banner image of RoseAnne rehearsing in the Atrium is a screen shot capture from ARTFORUM's video interview with Maria a few days before the opening.

Congratulations and Thank You to Maria Hassabi; Thank you to MOMA & staff and to all the performers involved in the production.

RoseAnne Spradlin named Director of new low residency MFA program

Choreographer RoseAnne Spradlin has been named Director of a new low residency MFA program in Choreography and Visual Arts at Wilson College in Chambersburg, PA.  The two-year program's first MFA class, with students coming from Pennsylvania, Arizona, New York City and Paris, France, met for the month of July 2015 on the Wilson campus. Online courses and home-area mentoring continue throughout the year.  

"The new job allows me to develop my interest in somatics and body-mind studies while deepening my personal investigation of choreography and the visual arts.  I love working with younger artists and providing short-term job opportunities for other artists I admire. The MFA hosts at Wilson are great people with open minds; the campus is quiet and green; we more or less take over the place for the month of July; the first summer was full of surprise and wonder (and great dinners by Paula!)" - RA
