March 24, 2005 -- The University of Wyoming Department of Theatre
and Dance's Spring Dance Show, featuring original work from UW dance
faculty members Mel Claridge, Ana Paula Hofling and Penney Hutchinson,
will tour Wyoming April 11-15.
Admission is free and open to the public except where noted. The locations, dates and times are:

Claridge contributes three pieces to the concert. "Incontro alle sei" is an imaginative rendering of the relationships that emerge among six people dining at a formal restaurant. "Toward the Within" provides a glimpse into the lives of two women trapped in their own disturbed realities and "The Way I Feel" is a lyrical and hard edged jazz dance for nine women.
Hofling's work includes a quartet that uses manipulation of time and space to create metaphors about romantic relationships. It will also include a piece that begins with simple head turns and tilts that evolve into full body movements representing different emotional dynamics among the dancers.
Hutchinson's contribution includes "Strange Light," a piece with original music by Fei Wu that incorporates both traditional Chinese instruments and Balinese gamelan.
