About the concert:
Western Illinois University's annual Winter DanceWorks Concert will offer an evening of dance, choreographed by students, guest artists, and instructors in University Dance Theatre (UDT). Each performance will incorporate a variety of dance styles, including modern/contemporary, jazz, Afro-modern and ballet.
Co-Artistic director of UDT and dance faculty Lara Petrin choreographed In Motion, an all male ensemble that highlights the multifaceted movement of the male body.
Elle McGary choreographed If Only, a piece about working hard for something that wasnít was meant to be and learning to work with what you are given. It deals with struggle, conflict, and ultimately acceptance.
Diana DeFelice-Pirro choreographed Fabricated, a piece inspired by the story of Gypsi Blanchard who was forced to live a life as a handicapped child while she was not actually handicapped at all, ultimately resulting in her killing her mother to be free.
Heidi Clemmens, Co-Artistic Director of UDT and dance faculty choreographed Moving Forward. This work looks at the challenges of moving forward in the midst of our every day obstacles.
Time, fertility, light, cycles, and more. Marrrisha Devereueawax-Coates welcomes you to join her dancers in celebrating the moon, all the elements (fire, water, earth, & air), and how the moon is connected to each of our lives in her piece titled Kamaria.
She is Her, choreographed by Jacquie Frausto is a women empowerment inspired jazz number.
Oftentimes we are closed off to others and donít take the time to learn where their thinking and reasoning about who they are comes from. Someone Elseís Shoes, choreographed by Colin Stansky, invites us to explore this thought.
