The OSU Department of Dance comes back uptown with a fantastic roster of modern dance by progressive and professional choreographers, including:
Hummingbird by Michael Kelly Bruce. Riding the tension between hope and despair in a roadhouse along Highway 61, set to the eponymous composition of blues master B.B. King.
L'Ombre du Silence (Shadow of Silence) by Olivier Tarpaga. Live collaboration with internationally known musician Flatié Dembélé, local musician Michael Wall, and visual artist Nicole Bauguss.
Back, Jack by Susan Hadley. Set to 60's girl band music - a playful look at a generation of girls unwilling to take a backseat to boys.
Plus a commissioned work by L.A. based interdisciplinary artist Sabela Grimes featuring hip-hop dance theatre.
Let's get down to Dance Uptown!
