Boston University’s Dance Theater Group is pleased to present ORIGINS 2017, a fall dance concert with performances on Friday, November 17 at 8 p.m. and Saturday, November 18 at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. This production showcases a wide variety of original works by student, alumni, and faculty choreographers and will take place in Boston University’s Dance Theater.
ORIGINS 2017 will include group dances choreographed by esteemed faculty members Margot Parsons and Lindsey Leduc. The student pieces, which have been mentored by dance faculty Micki Taylor-Pinney, Ann Brown Allen and guest artist, Peter DiMuro, will consist of large group ensembles as well as smaller groups. Music selections will vary across genres and artists. Likewise, the dances themselves will reflect diversity, ranging from traditional to experimental, abstract to thematic, and light-hearted to contemplative.
The Boston University Dance Theater, located at 915 Commonwealth Avenue, is a 223-seat studio/theater space designed specifically for dance performances, classes, and special events.
Dance Theater Group’s fall concert is presented in cooperation with the Department of Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (Timothy Moore, Executive Director, and Micki Taylor-Pinney, Director of Dance) and partially funded by the Boston University Undergraduate Student Fee. Admission will be $15 for the general public and $10 for all students and members of the Boston University community with ID.
Dance Theater Group (DTG) was created in 1973 to give the Boston University community the opportunity to learn different styles of dance and the chance to perform in student, alumni, and faculty works. Dance Theater Group is dedicated to building a community that values dance as a concert art form.
