UT Department of Theatre and Dance Presents: Fall for Dance
Dance Repertory Theatre, the award-winning student dance company, returns to the stage to present work by nationally acclaimed artists including the Mark Morris, David Justin, Yoav Kaddar and Holly Williams.
Fall For Dance highlights include Mark Morris’ masterpiece Grand Duo, as well as the premiere of Holly Williams’ Orchid, bringing South Sea tropical breezes and waterfalls to the stage with music by Hawaiian chanteur Israel (“Izzy”) Kamakawiwo’ole. David Justin’s Quiver, recently performed at Dance Gallery Festival in New York, delves into the mythology of Eros (Cupid) and presents a glimpse of the nature of humanity in relation to love.
Raw by Yoav Kaddar incorporates imagery of wild animal physicality and wide-open spaces in a dance that is communal, pulsing and ritualistic. Choreographer and UT bachelor of fine arts student Stacy Skolnik investigates intimate experiences best told through gesture and dynamic movement in her work Unspeakable Truths.
