UI Department of Dance presents Graduate/Undergraduate Concert Dec. 4-6

The University of Iowa Department of Dance will present its fall Graduate/Undergraduate Concert at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Dec. 4 through 6, in the Space Place Theater of UI North Hall.

The concert program -- chosen through an audition/adjudication process by faculty members Alan Sener, Jennifer Kayle and Thaddeus Davis -- includes:

--Lynn Bowman's "Let Them Eat Cake" is a whimsical trio set to "Summer" from Vivaldi's "Four Seasons."
--Kate Vigmostad collaborated with her quintet of dancers to create "Trace," set to her own "Evening Soundscape," edited by C.C. Brown.
--A text and sound score contributed by the dancers accompanies Sydnie Mosley's "Doo Bee Dop, Doo Et," combining rhythmic movement, scatting and storytelling about sibling relationships.
--Picasso's bull drawings were the inspiration for Analia Alegre-Femenais' solo "A Sum of Parts."
--The Kronos Quartet's version of music by Sigur Ros accompanies Keely Glenn's farming quartet, "Terra Firma."
--Amy Echols wrote the text for her "Containment," a quartet inspired by a Matisse painting of a lonely woman.
--Mosley's "Pulled/Together" is a quintet exploring collective energy, set to Michael Wall's "Beginning."
--Keely Shaffer-Glenn and Steven V. Hullana collaborated on their duet "Apples," to music by Coldplay.
--Balance, aggressiveness and passivity in relationships are explored in Joanna Rosenthal's "Sextet," which uses music by the Studio Group and Juke Baratone.
--Jesus Renteria reflects on where he has been and where he is going in his solo "Wanderer," set to music by the Tin Hat Trio.

Admission to the performances is $12 for adults, $6 for UI students and youth. Tickets are available in advance from the University Box Office, which has moved back into the Iowa Memorial Union, at 319-335-3041 or 1-800-346-4401. Any remaining tickets will be available at the door.
