Double Refraction

Performed by Azaria Hogans

We are a sum of our experiences. This dance explores the collaboration and inspiration of multiple cultural influences. Aspects such as refraction and Italian inspirations are major themes in this film. Music was originally composed for this film by David Dingess.

Azaria Hogans is dance artist and choreographer who brings social awareness through her choreographic works. She received her B.A in Spanish with minors in both dance and dance therapy at Georgia College and State University when her passion for culture, global issues and dance as a communicative practice amalgamated. Azaria is currently an M.F.A. candidate at Texas Woman’s University expanding her passion in dance as a means of social change. Her current work, “More Than Time Stolen,” confronts the issues of sexual assault and premieres both at the African Diaspora Conference held at Georgia College and State University and the American College Dance Association South-Central Conference in 2016. Azaria utilizes a trifold structure of education, community and art, to improve the understanding of dance as a vital medium for cultivating change.
