Contemporary Dance Technique is a course that practically considers our moving bodies through cultivating awareness and exploring weight, shape, space, and time along with a deep sense of kinetic connection within the body and among bodies. This semester, the Contemporary Dance Technique class will also partner with the Zilkha Gallery exhibit Audible Bacillus. As a class, we will explore the images and artworks in terms of process, composition, and theme and create an informal performance sharing layer to the exhibit.

Spring 2019 production of
EURYDICE By Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Corey Sorenson

(Please note change of title – this will replace the previously announced production of Myth in Performance)

Come be a part of what the New York Times described as “Rhapsodically beautiful. A weird and wonderful new play – an inexpressibly moving theatrical fable about love, loss and the pleasures and pains of memory.” In Eurydice, Sarah Ruhl reimagines the classic myth of Orpheus through the eyes of its heroine. Dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice must journey to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost love. With contemporary characters, ingenious plot twists, and breathtaking visual effects, the play is a fresh look at a timeless love story. Eurydice has been performed around the country, as well as off-Broadway, and won the 2003 Whiting Award for Drama.

Human schistosomiasis affects about 200-300 million people worldwide, with chronic morbidity and substantial mortality. Join evolutionary biologist Dr. Armand Kuris as he discusses the breakdown of coevolution and thresholds of transmission controls of public health mitigation of such diseases and shares his work in Kenya and Senegal, where his team has shown that transmission control through predation on the snail intermediate hosts may be necessary to achieve elimination of human schistosomiasis in Africa.

Dr. Kuris is the Charles Storke II Chair in Ecology and Professor of Zoology in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
