University of North Carolina School of the Arts Puts on Fall Dance Concert
8:53am Nov 18, 2013
The University of North Carolina School of the Arts Fall Dance Concerts provide Triad audiences with a glimpse into the highly professional training that goes on at the school. For the student dancers themselves, it’s an opportunity to approach new works from both an academic and vocational perspective under the collaborative guidance of some of today’s leading dancer/choreographers.
Bessie Award-winning performer, NYC based choreographer and UNCSA alumna Kimberly Bartosik was a longtime member of the legendary Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Her recent works commissioned and presented by Dance Theater Workshop, New York Live Arts, and others explore space, time, and audience perspective. Taiwan native and UNCSA School of Dance contemporary dance faculty Ming-Lung Yang was founding member and Artistic Director of Dance Forum Taipei Dance Company, and his choreography has been presented around the world. Both artists will premiere new works performed by UNCSA dancers during Fall Dance. They spoke with David Ford recently between rehearsals. Ming’s work Lotto combines the placement and interpretation of numbers to generate specific movements. It’s an evolving and highly collaborative work.
Their new works along with that of Associate Dean Brenda Daniels will be premiered during UNCSA’s Fall Dance Concert beginning Tuesday, November 19th through the 23rd with evening performances at 7:30 PM, and a Saturday matinee at 2:00 PM in the Agnes de Mille Theatre on the UNCSA campus.
