Living Legacy | 2003- 2004
In 2003, as Montgomery Hall was being renovated and plans were underway for MANCC, the Chair of the then FSU Department of Dance, Elizabeth Patenaude invited Dan Wagoner to re-stage Dolly Sods: After the Flood on FSU Dance students. Dolly Sods originally premiered in 1991 at the Joyce Theater and was performed by Randy James, Patricia Plascak, Kaela San Lee, Lisa Wheeler, Tommy Neblett, Ellis Wood and Keith A. Thompson.
While the re-staging was an exceptional opportunity for students, and ultimately for Florida State, who later went on to hire Wagoner full-time, a large portion of the residency was spent exploring documentation techniques with FSU Faculty member Tim Glenn. This experience helped lay the groundwork for future documentation efforts at MANCC with videographers in residence.
