Don't miss Drexel's Dance Ensemble this weekend as they bring to life all kinds of comings and goings in Arrivals & Departures featuring premiere works by guest artist, Taiwanese choreographer Kun Yang-Lin. The winter dance concert series runs from January 22nd to the 24th with performances at 8 PM in the Mandell Theater (33rd and Chestnut Sts.). The concert also features new work by Dance Program Director Dr. Miriam Giguere, Professor Olive Prince and student choreographers. To reserve tickets, call 215-895-ARTS.
Kun-Yang Lin is one of Taiwan's finest choreographers and the Artistic Director of Kun-Yang Lin Dancers. He has performed and choreographed with Dance Fusion, DanceNow/NYC and The New York Theater Festival. He will perform Writing II, which explores ways to use the body as a calligrapher would use a brush. Dr. Giguere's new work is entitled Borrowed, and seven student-choreographed pieces will be performed.
These works will be danced by 55 Drexel student dancers representing 26 different university programs. The cost is $5 for students and $8 for general admission.
