Informal, yet intimate show expresses students emotions and techniques
Students in UH’s Dance Theatre are set to propel themselves into an event that spotlights works choreographed and performed by fellow students.
“March Madness,” the free and informal annual event, is presented by the School of Theatre and Dance and kicks off at 7 p.m. Monday inside studio 208 of UH’s Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts.
The night of dance features completed works as well as works currently in progress.
“Compared to a theater, this is a fairly small environment,” senior Jessica Capistran said in a UH news release. “The audience can see the dances from different angles and will catch on to some things they wouldn’t see on stage. It’s also a very informal event.”
Capistran, along with partner Ali DiNunzio, will perform an untitled duet set to the music of Edith Piaf.
“From Within,” a piece Capistran choreographed in fall 2011 that is set to music by Zoe Keating will also be featured. The piece explores the human heart.
