Main Stage Dance/Theatre Festival premieres three new works by UC Davis undergraduate students exploring dance and theatre from extremely different angles.
See what happens when monochromatic lives are transformed by the prism of dance in Prisma with choreography by Toni Alejandria. Prisma ponders the body’s natural desires in a moment of true freedom.
Reparté, choreographed by Ann Dragich, is a funky compilation of personalities coming together through movement in a space of pseudo-reality. It includes humorous and witty interactions amongst performers, discovered in late night rehearsals running on coffee and bubblegum.
Life Like Tales with choreography by Vivian Thorne was inspired in part by Buster Keaton’s silent films. The piece explores the nature of theatre, performance and human interactions.
Main Stage Dance/Theatre Festival previews on April 10 and continues through April 20 in Main Theatre. This includes two special matinee performances on Picnic Day, April 19, at 1pm and 3pm.
