Dancers in Company 2018
CollectivEnergies

The University of Iowa’s premier touring ensemble, Dancers in Company, presents their hugely popular home concert. Now in its 34th year, the company will create an evening-length work with Artistic Director Jennifer Kayle exploring this year’s theme of collective action and its relationship to sustainability. Collaborating with community and campus partners to better understand how a group of people share an intention, their performance will question, challenge, and inspire ideas about how we make things happen together, at times inviting collective participation in the performance (no dancing required!). Curated by Company Director Jessica Anthony, the companion workshops, panels, and post-performance discussions will engage scholars, community activists, and audiences in a collective conversation.

Don’t miss the only UI home performances from this company of talented and exciting dancers and choreographers.

Tickets:
$14 Adults
$8 Seniors (65+)
$8 Students & Youth
$5 UI Students (with valid ID)

Tickets are available through the Hancher Box Office at 319.335.1160 or 1.800.HANCHER or online at www.hancher.uiowa.edu/tickets.
