BUFFALO, NY -- The Department of Theatre and Dance at the University at Buffalo will present Zodiaque Dance Company: "VOICES…that dance," Oct. 14-17 and 21-24 in the Drama Theatre in the Center for the Arts on the UB North (Amherst) Campus.

The performance, under the direction of Tom Ralabate and associate director Tressa Crehan, will be one of more than 50 inaugural events being held during October in conjunction with the investiture of John B. Simpson as UB's 14th president.

Now in its 31st season, Zodiaque's unique blend of movement inquiry, encompassing a wide range of movement styles and techniques, allows for the choreographic voice to inspire and inform. Good choreographers create dance and a belief in the power of art to lift the human spirit. In the same sense, good leaders combine love and responsibility to exalt the human spirit, making their institutions the best they can be.

Currently celebrating its 10th anniversary, the UB Center for the Arts is a non-profit organization that presents a wide range of high-quality performing arts and visual arts for the university, Western New York and beyond. It is the largest and most versatile arts organization in the region. Part of the center's vision is to enrich Western New York by providing a wide range of cultural opportunities and expanding access to the arts through its community outreach activities.
