UW Professors Present Vertical Dance Performance in Greenland
June 24, 2008 — Two University of Wyoming faculty members recently presented a vertical dance performance at the Katuaq Culture House in Nuuk, Greenland.
The performance by Margaret Wilson, assistant professor in the Department of Theatre and Dance, and Neil Humphrey, professor in the Department of Geology and Geophysics, included three solo works and two duets augmented by video of the Greenland landscape and choreographed for the Greenland venue. While in residency in Nuuk, Wilson and Humphrey also discussed long-term collaborative planning with the Nordic Institute of Greenland and met with high school students to discuss UW and vertical dance.
The professors' visit to Greenland was partially sponsored by the Office of International Programs at UW and was intended to seed interest in future projects involving university students and faculty.
