BACKGROUND:

The Department of Dance and Theatre at the University of North Texas will showcase live dance works from a variety of genres in its Faculty Dance Concert beginning Thursday.

re/Generation will include works choregraphed by student Jess Owens, faculty members Sue Collins, Whiley Green, Whitney Geldon, Reyna Mondragon, Amiti Perry and Jocelyn Schimpf, as well as guest choreographers Kim Elliott, a New York-based hip hop professor, and Texas’ own Daniel Negrete. Their choreography will showcase themes of empowerment, connectivity and resiliency.

“These diverse works will explore, reflect and redefine the multiplicity of humanness through highly physicalized choreographies,” said Perry, adjunct professor of dance at UNT and artistic director for the concert.
