The Department of Dance will present an evening of original work by faculty artists at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 11-12, in Aycock Auditorium.
The faculty bring a variety of backgrounds and experience to their choreography, and the concert will showcase some of the best artists in the state and create a compelling night of dance.
Four works – including two premieres – will be shown:
- Duane Cyrus will present a new work for 11 dancers with original music by Balanescu Quartet.
- Robin Gee will present a new African work with nine dancers and two musicians.
- Jan Van Dyke will show a newly revised version of her 1999 dance “Jive,” a quintet with music by Andrew Bird.
- John Gamble will present a reconstruction of his 1988 dance “Wintersong,” performed by members of his company, the John Gamble Dance Theater, and featuring associate professor B.J. Sullivan in the leading role.
