“Political science influences my dance-making on a daily basis. I am interested in demonstrating social, political, and environmental themes through my choreographic work. In the dance work that I created for my Honors College thesis, titled All For One and None for All, I wanted to bring awareness to the idea that corporations can be the puppet masters of the candidates they sponsor.” Caitlin Mahon ’14
