Pittsburgh dance company invites SRU's Keller to show her moves
SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - Slippery Rock University's Jennifer Keller, associate professor of dance, has created some great dance moves. So great in fact, she's been invited to show them off in a hybrid "dance technology" program when Pittsburgh's LABCO Dance presents "Private Domain" to open its 2007-08 season.
Keller's "Interior Spaces" choreography premiers as a commissioned dance piece for the company. She said the company is committed to advancing the daring art of movement. The show opens at
8 p.m. Friday at the New Hazlett Theater on Allegheny Square E. Additional performances are at 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.
"It was exciting to be asked to choreograph a work for Pittsburgh's leading, cutting-edge dance company," Keller said. "The work explores the interior spaces of the audiences' mind, the dancers' bodies and the theatrical space. This techno-driven dance explores frames and boundaries, projecting a constantly shifting landscape onto the floor where the dancers converge like moths to a light."
The show will also include a premiere by choreographer Pavel Zustiak in conjunction with costume and set designer Nick Vaughan and Jake Margolin, and a repertory work by artistic director Gwen
Hunter Ritchie, which is being restaged in collaboration with dance videographer Lynne Wimmer.
