The Colgate University Department of Theater presents the Spring Dance Concert: DIS/UNITY. This production is the culmination of THEA 371: Contemporary Dance in Performance. Students in this class worked together and individually in the creation of their own choreography while immersed in faculty and guest artist work. They collaborated with students in MUSI 208: Jazz Improvisation, under the direction of Professor Brian Stark, and brought additional students into the fold for guest artist Esther Baker-Tarpaga’s interdisciplinary work.

The theme of DIS/UNITY is approached capaciously. It is presented across these works thematically, conceptually, and as a choreographic device. The artists consider the ruptures and continuities that characterize their relationships and lives in moments of transition. They question audience desires for cohesion and, in some cases, allow the seams to remain exposed. They merge disparate dance forms, artistic disciplines, and sounds, creating moments of harmony and those of dissonance. 

The performance will begin at Taylor Lake near Willow Path followed by a procession to Brehmer Theater in the Dana Arts Center.

This event is co-sponsored by Colgate Arts Council, Department of Art, Department of Music, and Environmental Studies Program.
