BYU dance faculty present evening of new works Feb. 26-27

Brigham Young University’s Department of Dance will present a “Faculty Works Concert,” an evening of dance, art and motion, Friday through Saturday, Feb. 26-27, at 7:30 p.m. in the Dance Studio Theatre, 166 Stephen L. Richards Building.

Tickets are $6 and can be purchased online at byuarts.com, by phone at (801) 422-4322 or in person at the Harris Fine Arts Center Ticket Office.

The concert will feature performances by current students in the Dance Department.

Choreographers for the concert include Robin Konie, Marin Leggat, Rebecca Lewis, Susan Lloyd, Caroline Prohosky, Kathleen Sheffield and Kori Wakamatsu.

A highlight of the evening will be a special appearance from the BYU Young Dancemakers who will perform “Eve, The Crowning Creation,” Sheffield’s work inspired by Eve’s courageous act in the Garden of Eden.

“I look back on my life and can identify the ‘Eve’ moments where certainly my decisions have altered my future and the future of my posterity,” Sheffield said. “With themes of womanhood, decisions and trust, this work will hopefully be an inspiring addition to the concert.”

Another featured piece is “Letters in the Sand,” Wakamatsu’s work that addresses the strength of a woman dealing with the loss and emptiness that come after placing a child for adoption.

Other appearances during the evening will be a solo performance by faculty member Marin Leggat, artistic director of MELD Danceworks in New York, and Lloyd and Prohosky’s work, “Somewhat Present Without Restrictions,” a glimpse at the art and heart of three women: a painter, a musician and a dancer, according to Lloyd.

For more information, contact Robin Konie at (801) 422-8022 or at robin_konie@byu.edu.
