Faculty Works Concert hosted by BYU Dance Department Oct. 28-29

Brigham Young University's Department of Dance will present a Faculty Works Concert in the Richards Building Dance Studio Theatre Thursday and Friday, Oct. 28-29, at 7:30 p.m. The show will feature current students performing works by choreographers in the Department of Dance.

Tickets at $6 are available online at byuarts.com or through the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 422-4322.

This year, more than 70 students will perform nine dances choreographed by faculty in ballroom, ballet, contemporary and world dance divisions. In addition to live performance, a dance film will be shown as well as an animation dance project.  

Other collaborators include faculty from the Department of Theatre and Media Arts and independent composers and dancers from San Francisco. Contemporary faculty member Kate Monson will also perform in a trio alongside two colleagues from Utah Valley University.

Some of the featured performances are:

  • “Portrait,” choreographed by BYU’s Rebecca Lewis. It is a three-part reflection of three artists: Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol.
  • “Ole Guapa,” choreographed by Curt Holman. The dance is a fusion of Argentine, American and International-style tango.
  • “Shakespearean Suite,” choreographed by Kori Wakamatsu. This will highlight, in dance, three works of Shakespeare: Sonnet LXV, “Macbeth” and “Antony and Cleopatra.” This dance received first-place marks at the Utah Shakespearean Festival High School Dance Division Competition.
  • “Thought of You,” an original animation work by Ryan Woodward and Kori Wakamatsu. The song “Thought of You” by The Weepies was the inspiration for the piece.

Other choreographers for the performance include Kalise Child, Andrea McCallister, Colleen West, Kate Monson, Caroline Prohosky and Karen Jensen.
