UI Dance Company Presents Dances Described

March 2 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us for an interactive  program  of dance and  dialogue  with the UI Dance Company.  In their 2023-24 season the company has focused on  adaptability &  accessibility,  resulting in an evening of four works. ”Winning” by Artistic Director Stephanie Miracle is a piece that playfully dips and dives, forms and dissolves in questions of why we compete, how we play games, when teamwork works, and what we are connected to.  Also presented on the bill  are new  works by guest Choreographer Aaron Samuel Davis, and Prof. Christopher McMillian as well as a piece  reflecting on the process of embodying  Martha Graham’s iconic  Panorama.

 

All performances will include open and closed Audio Description. Friday’s performance will also include ASL interpretation.
Audio Description (AD), a tool for making performing and visual arts more accessible, is integrated into the performance.  UIDC has been learning to use Audio Description as a tool to describe live dance in order to connect and share with all audiences across our region. We are curious about how this process will challenge our current dance making practices and will allow us to work towards greater inclusion and accessibility in the studio and on the stage.

About the UI Dance Company: Since 1984, UIDC has been offering  students  an opportunity to present high caliber, innovative  dance  performances to  audiences across Iowa  in a variety of settings. The UI Dance Company believes  dance can provoke awe, inspire joy, stimulate thought, and create new perspectives. Our  mission is to create  meaningful connections with the community through the creation of new choreography for Space Place theater, public touring engagements, workshops, lecture-demonstrations, and site-specific interventions.
