Dance in Concert

Dance in Concert will be presented in the de Jong Concert Hall at BYU January 28-30. This evening of dance will be bold, cool, and innovative. The concert showcases members of The Dancers’ Company in works by BYU faculty members and guest artists from across the nation. It will be a dynamic mixture of movement, media, and live music featuring the BYU Percussion Ensemble under the direction of Ron Brough. Dancers and musicians join together in what will be a work of “pure power,” creating a visual, aural, and kinetic tour de force.
Guest choreographers for the concert include international and former Ririe/Woodbury dancer Stephanie Nugent, Andrew Madsen who just completed a three-year contract with the touring company of Wicked, Arizona choreographer Carley Condor, and collaborators from Delaware and Texas in a unique long-distance choreographic work.
Some of the highlights of the concert include a multi-media work entitled, Landscapes. This collaborative work draws its inspiration from the power of the earth and the human spirit. Barefootin’ Suite, by Artistic Director Pat Debenham, is a suite of dances to the music of Gladys Knight, Martha and the Vandellas, Irma Thomas, and Robert Parker. It is a work that pays homage to the past while still looking to the future. Stephanie Nugent’s contemporary work, Sub(stance), confirms that within every organic thing, there is an inner kinetic and emotional world and that is the substance of what it means to be human.
Two other favorites that were premièred on last year’s Dance in Concert will also be performed: Where Light is Made to Travel by UVU prolific and award winning choreographer Amy Markgraf Jacobson and Duet from Wreck by Carl Flink.
Dance in Concert will be an evening of exciting dance that ranges in feeling from dramatic to delightful and athletic to lyrical.
