A 'Howl' for Today

Our Howl

Fall concert gives voice to new generation

In his groundbreaking 1955 poem "Howl," Allen Ginsberg gave voice to a generation stifled by midcentury industrial capitalism. The Dance Theatre Group (DTG) fall concert updates that classic for a new generation with "Our Howl: Language Dance and Movement of Meaning."

This edgy, multimedia-enhanced fall concert is built around "Verdi for Three," a dance comprised of baby sign language, by Richard Move, Dickinson's summer 2016 choreographer-in-residence. Other highlights include a work by fellow New York choreographer Ben Munisteri, set to Ariel's "Full Fathom Five," from Shakespeare's The Tempest; a collaboration that includes work by student poets; and choreography by Assistant Professor of Dance Erin Crawley Woods and Director of Dance Sarah Skaggs. It is staged in Mathers Theatre, Holland Union Building, Nov. 18-19 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 20 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $7, or $5 with student ID.
