Dance Department presents 2020 faculty concert Feb. 6-8 and 13-15

January 28, 2020

The School of Education’s Dance Department is hosting its annual faculty concert Feb. 6-8 and 13-15 at the Margaret H’Doubler Performance Space, Lathrop Hall. 

The concert will feature the work of guest artist Seán Curran, who makes dance “with the sharp intelligence of a conceptualist (Boston Globe)" that is the “equivalent of a night of invigorating conversations (New York Times),” and contemporary dance works from UW-Madison faculty artists Duane Lee Holland, Li Chiao-Ping, Marlene Skog, Chris Walker, and Jin-Wen Yu. 

Faculty Concert posterCurran will present excerpts from his pieces “Social Discourse,” an abstract work with robust athletic partnering. Assistant professor Holland will premiere “Heartbreak Hotel,” a work that investigates empowerment through self-love, and Skog, also an assistant professor, will expand her Shakespearean exploration with a solo performance that reinvents the character Puck from "A Midsummer Night’s Dream."

Li will premiere “dirt,” which casts 14 dancers as microorganisms in a whimsical free-form fantasy, while Yu will present a sensual, dynamic ensemble piece exploring non-verbal expression, titled “Said and Done.” 

Tickets are $22, $16 for students/seniors, and are available for purchase online, by phone at 608-265-2787, and in person at 800 Langdon St., Madison.
