About the Show


A formal feeling is a 45-minute exploration of constructing and deconstructing the idea of individuality in a group-think atmosphere. Addressing how individuals can express themselves to their truest forms while adhering to societal standards and the harmony or discontent that this can cause.












About the Choreographer


Alexandra Beth Tiscareno is a locally grown modern dance-maker, performer and teacher. Before her training began, she was an active performer in the colorguard activity since high school. She has been a student at Fresno City College since 2013 and recently finished her final semester before she begins her new journey with dance at Mills College in the Fall. Alexandra has created and produced a number of works for Fresno City College, Fight with Fashion, National Dance Day, and Fresno Dance Collective. She recently set her first evening-length piece with NOCO, titled ‘Nothing is Beautiful; Everything is Fine’. Last summer she attended Bates Dance Festival in Maine, where she was awarded a merit scholarship and was selected as a part of their Young Choreographers/New Works program. This is Alexandra’s 5th time choreographing for NOCO and her second evening-length work.
