UI Space/Place dance concert features faculty, student choreography

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The University of Iowa dance department's traditional semester-ending production, the Space/Place Concert, will feature a combination of new student choreography and works created or staged by faculty members at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 4-5, in the Space/Place Theatre of UI North Hall.

Visiting faculty member Susan Toumine, a veteran of Ballets Canadiens, will stage two sets of ballet pointe variations -- the Kirov Ballet version of the pas de trois from "Swan Lake" by Petipa and a variation from "Carmina Burana."

Charlotte Adams, who joined the dance department faculty this fall, will set her "Lockjaw" on UI student dancers. This work represented the University of Nebraska's dance department in last year's American College Dance Festival regional competition. Adams' specialties are modern dance and kinesiology with a special emphasis on conditioning and injury prevention.

The student works on the program are "Amazing Grace" by Jennifer Moore, "The Cricket Dance" and a solo by Shannon Brown, "Over the Rainbow" by Stacy Kluck, "Anomie" by Adam Andrews and an untitled work choreographed by Joseph Poulson. The student works on the Space/Place Concert program are selected by a faculty adjudication panel.

Admission to the Space/Place Concert will be $5 ($4 for UI students, senior citizens and youth) at the door.
