UT Dance Professor Emerita Susan Taylor Lennon will perform Changing Identities: A Moving Memoir, a one-woman show about the joys, possibilities and fears about making changes in our lives.
The show will include storytelling and dance, as well as a creative activity that audience members can participate in before and after the performance. Performances will take place at the gallery at 8 p.m. on June 7, 8, 14, and 15, plus a matinee at 2 p.m. on June 8. All performances are free and open to the public.
Taylor Lennon said Changing Identities is told through storytelling and dancing. “I share my experiences with the inevitable ups and downs that come with the major changes in our lives,” she said.
During her long career Lennon has performed with the Tampa Ballet, Whose Move Dance-Theatre-Mime Company, and Susan Taylor & Company. Changing Identities is the fourth in her Moving Memoir series. The series premiered in 2005 with Telling Secrets, which led to her receiving the Mayor of Tampa's Artist of the Year Award.
