The University of Memphis’ College of Communication and Fine Arts will present Every Which Way, a dance concert featuring dance students, faculty, and alumni. Performances will be Friday, April 18, and Saturday, April 19, at 8 p.m. in the CCFA dance space, Room 124 in the Communication and Fine Arts Building.  Performances are free and open to the public.

The concert will showcase a variety of U of M dance talents.  “Anchors Away,” choreographed by Angie Hollis, instructor of dance, is a funny, touching musical theatre piece set to a medley of songs from the classic show South Pacific.  In “Sanctuary III,” Maxine Silverbird, a graduate student in the University College, tells a story in poetry, music, and dance about women seeking refuge.  Dance education senior Al Bonner explores the 1990s hip-hop genre in “Way of the Legendary,” using the music of Janet Jackson.  Susan Chrietzberg, professor of theatre, is reviving a work of dance and theatre called “Trappings;” set to “Night of the Four Moons” by George Crumb, the performers in this piece explore how humans can limit their possibilities. 

 “Awakened in Time,” set to music by the Art of Noise, is a modern dance piece choreographed by dance education alumna Amelia Byrd.  Jasmine Shope, a 2001 graduate of the U of M dance program, uses her expertise in Middle Eastern dance to create a street scene through music and movement.  CCFA Associate Dean Moira Logan works with Lecolion Washington, assistant professor of bassoon, to create the quirky modern dance piece “Way To Go.”
