Feb. 6-9. U-M dance students perform works by guest artist Andrea Miller, founder of Gallim Dance, a NYC-based company acclaimed by the New York Times for its "voluptuously polyglot choreography" and by New York Press for its "delicious strangeness, fierce aggression, and raw beauty." Miller presents her Pupil Suite, a work for 14 dancers characterized by wildly quirky and demanding movement as it shifts through a series of vignettes evoking everything from the possibility of intimacy to the madness of the imagination and the joy of movement. It is set to music by the Israeli band Balkan Beat Box. Also, works by U-M dance professors Melissa Beck, Bill De Young, and Peter Sparling. Beck's Beautiful Wreck, set to Mahler's Symphony no. 5 in C minor, is a work for 12 dancers that explores the metaphorical and physical connection between bridges and water, and De Young's Unbearable Lightness is a group work set to a live performance of Israeli composer Matti Kovler's similarly titled work for 7 basses that was in turn inspired by the Milan Kundera novel The Unbearable Lightness of Being. Sparling debuts Vox Femina (Girl Talk), a work for 19 dancers set to a range of vocal music from Handel to the Stovall Sisters (a 70s Southern gospel funk girl group) to NYC R&B icon Laura Nyro. The dancing is framed by 2 projection screens of highly kinetic video imagery.
