The Department of Dance at Case Western Reserve University is pleased to announce this fall’s production of MaDaCol (Mather Dance Collective). Performances are Nov. 19 and 20 at 8 p.m., and Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. The performance will feature new dance works by graduate students Ziying Cui, Richard Oaxaca and Tingting Zhou. More than sixty dancers with a diverse range of performance backgrounds will participate in the production.
Ziying Cui’s Intersection is inspired by Wislawa Szymborska’s poem We’re Extremely Fortunate. Concrete Jungle by Tingting Zhou depicts how people become lost in modern day urban life. In his new work Checkmate…?, third-year graduate student Richard Oaxaca uses the metaphor of chess to relay the ancient story of defending a Royal Family through battle.
All performances take place at Mather Dance Center located at 11201 Bellflower Road, on the university campus. All tickets are $5 and may be purchased at the door prior to each performance. Early arrival is suggested due to limited seating. No reservations and no advance sales will be made.
