    Northfield Experience: Stephan Koplowitz

    The producer of The Northfield Experience is Stephan Koplowitz. Since 1984, he has found inspiration for his work from a variety of sources stemming from his interests in music, photography, film, theater and dance combined with his interest in mapping the human experience through all of these arts. As the progeny of an American spy, he had the opportunity to grow up in France, Brazil and see several parts of the world at a young age, which greatly informed his perspective on life and culture. Koplowitz is a graduate of Wesleyan University where he majored in music composition and was mentored by composer Alvin Lucier and dance artist Cheryl Cutler. He started his early training with Hanya Holm spending two summers in Colorado and then was awarded Fellowships under Liz Thompson at Jacob’s Pillow from 1980-83, where he started his teaching career and encountered the work of Trisha Brown, David Gordon, Bessie Schonberg, and a host of other influential artists while pursuing his MFA in Choreography at the University of Utah.

    Northfield Experience: Semaphore

    Carleton's dance group Semaphore has busily been preparing for their show in the Northfield Experience! Led by Judith Howard, the students have created a piece to take place in the Northfield Public Library. It has two sections: one indoors and one outdoors. The outside piece focuses on the theme of reading and on the building's new architecture. Inside, the dance will center around themes of time. We can't wait to see their work!
