The Amherst College Department of Theater and Dance presents Come Sit By Me, a dance work created and performed by students in "Intermediate Contemporary Dance Technique" with Jenna Riegel.

In the absence of human touch and close physical contact, where do we turn for reassurance, for comfort or to fulfill our primary desire to be caressed and held? How can we feel connected even as we remain 6 feet apart? What resources are available to us to reboot our sense of well-being? What inspires us to move amidst so much stagnation?

Assistant Professor Jenna Riegel and the students of the "Intermediate Contemporary Dance Technique" course find solace and rejuvenation in nature and in dance in their site-specific work Come Sit By Me. Please join us on Friday, Nov. 20, at 3 p.m. for a Zoom watch party of the performance! Please register in advance through the button below for the Zoom link.
