Dance company Bodyvox slated to perform in de Jong March 14

The Brigham Young University Department of Dance will present creative guest dance company BodyVox Tuesday, March 14, at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall

Tickets are $10 or $8 with BYU or student ID. To purchase tickets, call the Fine Arts Tickets Office at (801) 422-4322 or visit performances.byu.edu

Directed by Jamey Hampton and Ashley Roland, BodyVox is a creative multidisciplinary dance company characterized by bold athleticism and fresh theatricality.

Based in Portland, Ore., BodyVox has received many awards, including the prestigious American Choreography Award for Outstanding Achievement in Short Film for “Modern Daydreams.”

The “Reverie” program of nine dances and two films begins with a solo choreographed and performed by Hampton to music by Paganini. In the evening’s feature dance, “Reverie,” green creatures in luminescent costumes dance in a whimsical light.

Roland and Hampton’s “Falling for Grace,” set to a film score by Danny Elfman, depicts a fantasy of unattainable love. “The Big Dip” features two dolphin-like dancers.

The performance also features two films written and directed by Mitchell Rose. The first film, “Deere John,” shows Hampton frolicking in an open field with a forklift construction vehicle. The second film features a center for sleep disorders where patients dance in their sleep.

The seven BodyVox performers are Zachary Carroll, Kristin Bacon, Jamey Hampton, Lane Hunter, Daniel Kirk, Ashley Roland and Eric Skinner.

For more information, contact Una Loughran, BodyVox general manager, at (503) 229-0627.

Going cashless to prevent COVID-19 was useless, new BYU microbiology study finds

May 12, 2022
A new study published in PLOS ONE from BYU scientists finds that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is almost immediately nonviable if deposited on a cash banknote. The virus actually shows greater stability on plastic money cards, with the live virus still being detected 48 hours after initial deposition, but no viable virus was detected on either cash or card that was randomly sampled in the study.
