Abstract

Do They Make a Sound? is about opening societies eyes about a topic that is widely discussed but that many do not see or confront. In this piece, three different stories are shown by students to show how bullying comes in different forms as well as different outcomes. According to bullyingstatistics.org, one in four adolescents have been bullied physicaly, verbally, socially, or by social media. With this high of a number, it is a topic that needs to be explored and actions need to be taken. In Do They Make a Sound? the goal is to have the audience experience the various emotions and experiences that the dancer portrays. Through the arts, the audience is able to view or go along the journey with the storyteller and gain an understanding from the piece itself. The other purpose of the piece is to let people know that they are not the only ones who have gone through the struggles. In the choreography class, we had to look at art pieces and poems to find inspiration for a artistic piece through dance, and Do They Make a Sound? does that but, in addition, sheds light on a complicated topic that needs the attention.

For this presentation, Jackie Stone received a Creative Expression Best Presentation Award for 2014.
