February 27 at 4:30pm: Jane Franklin Dance: Wash Over You Part I and II
Wash Over You finds travelers moved along an unpredictable, serene yet powerful river. There are many stopping places but can they get ‘off the boat?” Along the way, you’ll be on a raft, on dry land and on the wrong side of the fence. The only thing to do is pack your bag, stuff your friend into a trunk and let this new work Wash Over You. (Lab Theatre II, Running Time: One Hour)
March 5 at 2:00pm: Jane Franklin Dance: Wash Over You Part I and II (Lab Theatre II)
March 5 at 8:00pm: Miřenka Čechová: FAiTH
Dancer/choreographer Miřenka Čechová presents FAiTH: an exploration of art, faith and the search for essential meaning through art told through the story of a prima ballerina who lost her art and thus her will to live. Featuring the talents of Miřenka Čechová and Andrea Miltnerova, FAiTH offers a docu-dance exploration of what it means to be deprived of your art and passion. Čechová has created a work of abstract movement theatre derived from the nature, strengths, and weaknesses of the human spirit. (Sprenger Theatre, Running Time: One Hour)
