This spring season’s Zodiaque Dance Company concert demonstrates fluency in a wide range of techniques and forms and a deep comprehension of abstract artistry and emotional nuance. The Company continues to be an innovative force, supporting its creative talent while presenting repertory by respected dance makers. For this 42nd spring concert, Zodiaque presents works by UB faculty members who include: Melanie Aceto, Anne Burnidge, Tressa Gorman Crehan and Tom Ralabate. Other contributions include works by: Zodiaque alumnus and artist in residence Jon Lehrer; Zodiaque alumna and faculty member at Elon University Lynne Kurdziel-Formato, Zodiaque alumna and Infinity Dance Project Director Rebecca Wind, and senior Zodiaque performing member EvanMatthew Stewart. In addition, gracing the movement landscape with their talents are guest musicians John Morano and Stanzi Vaubel; with all works being captured by lighting designer Chase D.H. Brooks. The concert is dedicated in loving memory of Michael Hake, Western New York musical director extraordinaire, and Eugene Louis "Luigi" Facciuto, legendary classic jazz dance pioneer. Works presented by Kurdziel-Formato and Ralabate celebrate these two artistic treasures.

The UB Department of Theatre & Dance 2015-16 season takes inspiration from one of the five named UB 2020 themes, Justice.
