Mankind has always had an intense fascination with outer space and possessed a thirst to investigate and define its mysterious depths. Through abstract movement, Procyon explores several concepts and theories of astronomy, including the Nebular Theory of the formation of the Solar System, gravitational and orbital forces, and the life cycle of stars. Procyon premiered in the Spring 2011 Student Dance Concert and was choreographed by Helen Gay in collaboration with the dancers: Kristen Beukers, Kristen Bollinger, Mikella Bryant, Elena Caruthers, Jessica Kohnen, and Michael Travis Parmelee. The music is by Deaf Center, and the lighting design and photography is by Erik Alberg. The video is courtesy of Hope College Video Services.
