Expression and action collide in the Dance Theatre Group (DTG)’s fall concert, Movement Matters, a program of dance works exploring the mathematics and physics of movement and the movement of change.
Held annually on campus, the fall concert brings student dancers to the stage to perform works choreographed by emerging guest-artists. This year’s group includes Katie Roy ’15, a professional dancer whose choreography explores the art and mathematics of sound waves produced in three different versions of the same classical song. The concert also features choreography by Sarah Skaggs, director of dance; Erin Crawley-Woods, visiting assistant professor of dance; and Shani Collins-Achille.
A world-renowned former dancer at Ronald K. Brown, Collins-Achille studied at The Greensboro Ballet, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Urban Bush Women's Summer Leadership Institute and now teaches dance at Connecticut College.
The concert is held in Mathers Theatre (Holland Union Building). Showtimes are Friday, Nov. 20, and Saturday, Nov. 21, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 22, at 2 p.m. Tickets are available online or at the box office; admission is $7, or $5 with Student ID.
