‘Metamorphosis’ brings transformation

PULLMAN– Washington State University Theatre and Dance Program presents “Metamorphosis”, a celebration of dance to be performed in Jones Theatre, Daggy Hall at 8 p.m. Dec. 1 and 2.

Metamorphosis is about change in appearance, character and circumstances.

Butterflies are beautiful examples of this striking natural phenomenon: their appearances completely change during the various stages of their lives. Intrigued by this phenomenon, WSU students in beginning and intermediate/advanced modern and jazz dance classes explored movement ideas that are often overlooked in everyday living, as they recognize and accept change.

The results are magical and insightful pieces based on various themes of transformation, regeneration and migration. Dance in and of itself has changed dramatically.

Generational influences along with cultural and societal expressions have cultivated a wealth of dance forms. Dance styles represented will include modern, jazz, tap, hip/hop and belly dancing.

For the past nine years, the Theatre and Dance Program has consistently fostered dance performances at the end of every semester. These performances provide promising dancers and choreographers the opportunity to apply their skills and talents while insuring the preservation of the performing arts at WSU.

The box office will be open from 2  to 5:30 p.m. Nov. 30 through Dec. 1 and an hour before each performance. All tickets are $5. For more information and/or reservations, contact the theatre box office at 509/335-7236.
