BACKGROUND:

Senior dance majors at the University of North Texas will present four live works and three dance films in the New Choreographers Concert this weekend.

“UnSEEn” will take the audience on personal journeys of discovery through dance. With a focus on themes of discord and empowerment, the student choreographers will reveal human connection and passion through movement.

“These students have spent half of their collegiate dance experience on screen, in small, distanced groups and without physical contact,” said Amiti Perry, adjunct professor of dance at UNT and artistic director for NCC. “They felt disembodied and out of touch. With lack of ability to perform for live audiences, they also felt lost in the shadows, unseen.”

“UnSEEn” marks UNT Dance’s return to the live stage. The performances are free and open to the public.
