In "Skyscrapers, Sacks, and Sticks: Ruth Page's Experiments with Abstraction in the early 1930s," Joellen Meglin will discuss Page's collaborations with Noguchi and other visual artists/designers in choreographies that explored the dynamic/functional architecture of the body as it moved in space, amplified by portable sculptures, sculpted fabric, extensional props, and multifaceted masks. Emerita professor of dance at Temple University and coeditor of Dance Chronicle, Meglin is currently writing a book, funded by the New York Public Library, the Newberry Library, and Temple University, on Ruth Page.

After the talk, Jennifer Conley will perform an excerpt from her choreography Pieces of Pele. Artistic director of GeoDance Theatre and a former member of the Martha Graham Dance Company, Conley dances with fabric in sculptural ways to evoke geologic process.
