MADISON – The UW-Madison Dance Department and Jin-Wen Yu Dance present “Digging,” a two-part concert of new contemporary dance, and older award-winning work by Professor Jin-Wen Yu, September 28-30. The first half of the program will include Yu’s beautifully dark and dreamlike “Digging,” a continuation of his post-pandemic exploration of our new normal.The second half of the concert will include five works with very distinct cultural references, which include “Transmuting” (2000), an elegant, Japanese-inspired work set to pop-music, “Transit” (2013) a balletic contemporary work with an Argentinian tango flair, and “Passage” (2001), an ensemble work with nine dancers set to music from the Bulgarian Women’s Choir. Yu will also present “Terpsichores of Wind” (1998), a contemporary Chinese dance set to music by Joseph Koykkar and “On Horseback” (1995), an athletic, contemporary rendition of Mongolian horse riding.
