“Theater is important in that teaches students about collaboration and teamwork. It helps them with time management and being prepared. And studying scripts fosters critical thinking and assessment of human psychology,” said Dr. Fiona (Freddie) Harris, Assistant Professor of Writing and Rhetoric and Coordinator of the Company. “Our students are really talented and we discovered a need for a performance outlet here at the College. We are hosting this benefit to sustain and ensure that we can keep producing theater at Bloomfield College.”
 
At 7:00 p.m., students will perform Searching for Answers, a student improvisational piece about young people who are grappling with the aftermath of tragedy, directed by Bloomfield College’s acting teacher, Kellei Cosby.
 
After a brief intermission, special guest Kyle Marshall's contemporary dance production of Colored will begin. 
 
Kyle Marshall, who first came to campus last year and helped Bloomfield College students tell their personal stories through contemporary dance, is a 2018 NY Dance and Performance “Bessie” Jury Award recipient and a 2017 NJ State Council of the Arts Fellow. His dance company, Kyle Marshall Choreography (KMC) has performed at venues including Jacob’s Pillow Inside/Out, Joe’s Pub at the Public, Actors Fund Arts Center, NJPAC, NYC Summerstage, Wassaic Arts Project, and Conduit Dance (PDX). Commissions have included "Dance on the Lawn" Montclair's Dance Festival, NJPAC and Harlem Stage. Marshall currently dances with the Trisha Brown Dance Company and Doug Elkins choreography etc. Marshall is a graduate of Rutgers University with a BFA in Dance.
 
“One of our aims with the Company is to have students work alongside, and be exposed to, determined people making a living in the Arts,” said Dr. Harris. “We want them to witness the sort of passion and dedication it takes to ‘make it’ as a working artist in this contemporary landscape. Kyle is a wonderful example to our students.”
