University of Houston Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts School of Theatre & Dance premieres Emerging Choreographers Showcase
News Release
Monday, November 05, 2018

November 30- December 1, 2018
Emerging Choreographers Showcase is an exciting, refreshing, embodiment of the diverse melting pot of dance that stylizes the Houston area dance scene.

Houston  - University of Houston Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts School of Theatre & Dance (SoTD) presents its annual dance concert, Emerging Choreographers Showcase, at Lyndall Finley Wortham Theatre on the UH Central Campus on November 30- December 1, 2018.  Emerging Choreographers Showcase consists of original works choreographed, performed, lit, and produced by SoTD theatre and dance students.  Emerging Choreographers Showcase, much like the diverse city of Houston, provides an eclectic line-up of works that reflect the artists’ wide range of backgrounds and dance styles, such as African, ballet, hip-hop, modern and contemporary dance.  

Many choreographers are testing the boundaries of contemporary dance.  Senior Joel Aguilera uses his background as a professional break-dancer to choreograph a sexy, athletic, House-influenced work on a quartet of women.  Haley Shaw premieres Labyrinth, an acrobatic work where dancers move on top of, through and around a large cube, especially built for the piece.  Choreographer Lizzy Woodson premieres a comedic work set in a country and western bar.  Woodson said, “I hope to pull more people into the fun world of modern dance with my goofy cast and humor in our southern get-down dance to country pop songs. I feel like many people associate modern dance with melodrama, and I want my piece to break that stereotype.”   

University of Houston Kathrine G. McGovern School of Theatre & Dance premieres Emerging Choreographers Showcase on Friday, November 30, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, December 1, 2018 at 7:30 p.m, at Lyndall Finley Wortham Theatre on the UH Central Campus, 3351 Cullen Blvd, Houston, TX 77004. Tickets are $10-$20 and can be purchased at tickets.vendini.com or at 713-743-3388..  For more information, contact Toni Valle at (713) 409-2838 or visit http://www.uh.edu/kgmca//theatre-and-dance/.
