Event Details

This year’s Festival of Dance opens with a performance (Program A) that showcases new works by Theatre Arts and Performance Studies faculty Shura Baryshnikov and J Dellecave.

Shura Baryshnikov and Providence-based cellist Adrienne Taylor will perform their co-created work Two. Interested in deeply tuning to the other, Taylor and Baryshnikov’s new work focuses on the vulnerable passage between pre-composed materials and improvisatory scoring. Within this fundamental pursuit, the duo has pursued true horizontality, creating new – common – languages and modes of understanding through the tender states revealed in patient, creative research.

J Dellecave will present an excerpt of the work-in-progress Connect Four or Railroad Legacy—an original dance theater work made in collaboration with Brooklyn-based performers Rosza Daniel Lang/Levitsky and zavé martohardjono. Through complex

walking patterns, hits and misses, and a healthy dose of restarts, this new work explores the rhythms, contours, and textures of missed connections and reconnections.

The weekend shows (Program B) feature student performers and new dances developed within course settings. Represented styles range from contemporary dance and ballet to FlexN.

Choreographers include Deidra Braz, J Dellecave, Maree Remalia, Elias Schwartz ’23, Patricia Seto-Weiss, Paul Singh, and Marc Spielberger.

$15 for general admission, $5 for students
