April 11, 2019
“Close your eyes. Sit in silence and stillness, and pray for Universal Peace in your mind, all together as an audience. When the lights come back up, please open your eyes. Then return to your homes, taking with you the petal of SAKURA deep in your heart.”

Those were the words printed on the program for the April 6 performance of Sakura: a requiem for Hiroshima and Nagasaki by Keiin Yoshimura held in Moravian’s Prosser Auditorium.

How do we carve a space for joy in the midst of adversity? Jessica Marino, choreographer, teacher, and dancer with STAYCEE PEARL dance project & Sos Sos, has been mulling over this question for months. Then in October of 2018, she attended the exhibit of the installation piece “Flying Girls” by Nigerian artist Peju Alatise at the August Wilson Center in Pittsburgh. The sculpture depicts a circle of girls with wings and birds in flight overhead.

“I’d been thinking about how togetherness and ritual bring a sense of community and joy in the face of devastation,” says Marino. “I saw “Flying Girls,” and it brought me to tears. The eight life-size black statues spoke to innocence and the power of black girl joy despite the societal atrocities girls may be subjected to in Nigeria.”

That experience further inspired Marino’s work on the dance piece Wild Out, which will be performed by the Moravian College Dance Company on March 29 and 30.

Brothers Bob, Bill, and Kris Kadel spent their boyhood until their teen years in Mt. Arlington, New Jersey. They lived in a house on Kadel Drive, named after their great grandfather. “We came from a blue collar family of builders and carpenters,” Bob explains. When the boys were teenagers, the family moved to a larger home in rural Blairstown, New Jersey, where the boys could each have their own bedroom. The Kadel brothers are the first in their family to go to college. All three came to Moravian—Classes of ’09, ’10, and ’11, respectively. All began their careers in the finance industry, and today all have high-powered jobs in New York City.
