The UW Department of Dance is excited to present new works from nationally and internationally recognized choreographers Rujeko Dumbutshena, Alana Isiguen, Rachael Lincoln, Juliet McMains, "Majinn" Mike O'Neal, and Jennifer Salk, with guest artists Alex Dugdale and Alice Gosti.
Presented digitally, these explorations of dance on film examine themes ranging from human connection and identity to the joy of rhythm and music as movement. The new works, generated from a diverse range of movement styles, feature dancers set against local Seattle backdrops including Magnuson Park and on stage at Meany Center for the Performing Arts. The performances feature new collaborations and several original music compositions, including by Zimbabwean-born local Seattle artist Paul Mataruse and compositions by UW music students Griffin Becker and Lucas Zeiter performed by the University of Washington Wind Ensemble, as well as compositions by composer, dance faculty and staff member Paul Matthew Moore.
While following COVID-19 protocols and safety guidelines means that UW Dance concerts will look different this year, our faculty and students have been no less active in creating new work. We’re thrilled to be able to share this work with you directly to your living room!
