UT to Present An Evening of Experimental Dance Nov. 8

Published: Nov 1, 2013
Witness the interplay of visual art, dance and music during An Evening of Experimental Dance on Friday, Nov. 8, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the Scarfone/Hartley Gallery at The University of Tampa.

During the performance, student dancers will create movement inspired by the art in the gallery, the Sister Cities Arte Exhibition featuring works by 37 artists from Tampa’s oldest Sister City: Barranquilla, Colombia.

Susan Taylor Lennon, professor of speech, theatre and dance, who is organizing the event, said the performance will be semi-interactive for the audience as they will have to move around the gallery to look at the art.

Lennon said the choreography will change to incorporate dance shapes that specifically relate to the artwork around the dancers as well as the music.

“This performance is truly experimental as no one knows what the space is going to look like and what the music will be,” said Lennon.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Lennon at staylor.lennon@ut.edu or (813) 257-3745.
