UW Dance Majors Concert March 4-7, 2010

25 Feb

Join the University of Washington Dance Program for its annual showcase of new undergraduate student work. The concert features diverse inspiration and movement from current students highlighting many definitions of dance as a performing art. Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday March 4-6 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday March 7 at 2:00 p.m. All performances are at the Meany Studio Theater.

At the beginning of fall quarter, student choreographers develop and rehearse their dances. They organize everything from auditions, rehearsals and costumes to lighting and publicity. They work with a faculty adviser on all aspects of the concert and determine the look and shape of the overall event. This year’s concert uses captivating movement, unique props, and remarkable costumes to accentuate each choreographer’s artistic voice. New work examines the darker aspects of the human psyche, classical paintings, the seven deadly sins and spiritual influences. Returning choreographer David Lorence dives into spatial limitations, allowing his dancers to break free of one another in a process that serves to emphasis their role within the group. Samantha Crilly breaks technological boundaries with simultaneous projected and live movement. All of this and more is on tap at this year’s Dance Major’s Concert.

General admission tickets are $14, $12 for UW faculty/staff, UWAA members and $10 students/seniors. Tickets are available at the UW Arts Ticket office at 4001 University Way NE or online at www.meany.org.
