Fall For Dance
Artistic Directors: David Justin and Holly Williams

Presented by the Department of Theatre and Dance

Dance Repertory Theatre, the award-winning student dance company, returns to the stage to present work by nationally acclaimed artists including Mark Morris, David Justin, Yoav Kaddar and Holly Williams.

Fall For Dance highlights include Mark Morris’ masterpiece Grand Duo. Proclaimed “one of the greatest living choreographers” by The New Yorker, Morris has had a profound impact on the dance world ever since he burst onto the scene in 1980, and continues to create important new works with a singular ability to combine beautiful music, graceful movement, and delicious wit. Grand Duo, created in 1993, is a revel of complex rhythms and dark, tribal mysteries performed to music by American composer Lou Harrison.

“A tribal celebration danced around a metaphorical campfire. Dancers threw their fists in the air, pounded their feet in unison, sat cross-legged in a circle and shook their heads at the gods. Those who doubt that dance can be intoxicatingly thrilling should see it.” – The Seattle Times on Mark Morris’ Grand Duo

Other work includes the premiere of Holly Williams’ Orchid, bringing South Sea tropical breezes and waterfalls to the stage with music by Hawaiian chanteur Israel (“Izzy”) Kamakawiwo’ole. David Justin’s Quiver, recently performed at Dance Gallery Festival in New York, delves into the mythology of Eros (Cupid) and presents a glimpse of the nature of humanity in relation to love.

Raw by Yoav Kaddar incorporates imagery of wild animal physicality and wide-open spaces in a dance that is communal, pulsing and ritualistic. Choreographer and UT bachelor of fine arts student Stacy Skolnik investigates intimate experiences best told through gesture and dynamic movement in her work Unspeakable Truths.
