Michael Alexander is a second year MFA candidate at ASU with a concentration in performance. Alexander is from New Orleans, Louisiana and received his BA in Theatre at LSU where some of his favorite roles included performances in Stick Fly, Dutchman, A Free Man of Color, and Dionysus of the Holocaust. Here at ASU, he has performed in a stage reading of Upon the Fragile Shore, The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other, De/Ascending, Addison and the Black Hole, and She Kills Monsters. Alexander has also collaborated with the Black Theatre Troupe on a small project and has worked on several student films along with a professional commercial with Adobe. He will be performing in a graduate production in the fall of 2016 and is currently finishing some short films as well as assisting undergraduates in their capstone projects. He believes that through performance we can critique ourselves through comparisons.
Erika Moore has danced professionally with Debbie Allen in Los Angles and with several other LA based dance artists. Moore’s desire to pursue her undergraduate degree in Dance and Bio Engineering drew her to Arizona State University (ASU), but after an unexpected knee injury and the passing of her grandmother, Erika made the decision to focus her studies on Nonprofit Leadership and Management. After graduating with her B.S., Moore began work with Valley of the Sun United Way, leading programs under their Hunger and Homelessness initiative. As rewarding as her job was, she was never fully satisfied and decided to pick up where she left off at ASU and became a MFA in Dance candidate. Since making the decision to return to ASU, Moore has been able to find her niche in performance, teaching and dance theater. Moore is also a student worker at ASU Gammage focusing on coordinating the BEYOND series artist residencies. Moore’s current roles mixed with her previous experiences in non-profit social services is paving the way for her to achieve her future goals in the arts as an artist and administrator.
