Choreographers to showcase work

Published November 14, 2013

The Department of Theatre and Dance will present Emerging Choreographers Showcase on Nov. 22-24 in the Drama Theatre in the Center for the Arts, North Campus. 

Performance times are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. on Sunday.

Tickets are $20 for general admission and $10 for all students.

Directed by faculty member Kerry Ring, Emerging Choreographers Showcase is a dance concert of new works by invited, advanced-level UB choreography students. The concert features eight new works by choreographers Cristiana Cavallo, Jared Cutler, Jordan Dumars, Julie Marazzo, Megan Rutkowski, Ellie Sanna, Kurtis Sprung and Julia Tedesco. The works, focused on such themes as personal struggle, changing relationships and thematic variation, draw inspiration from visual art, technical lighting elements and digital poetry.

Lighting design is by Andrew Garvis, a student in the Department of Theatre and Dance.

Tickets for Emerging Choreographers Showcase can be obtained at the Center for the Arts box office and at
