The Fall 2020 UTDance Ensemble virtual program Falling Into The Unknown features the UTDance Ensemble performing in the gorgeous outdoor setting of TI Plaza on campus. The program will premiere new choreographic works by UT Dallas faculty members Micki Saba, Melissa Johnson, Anna Marie Ewert-Pittman, Sarah Matzke and Misty Owens. Also featured on this virtual program are members of the Dance for PD® Dallas community including dancers in Dallas, NYC, Florida and Canada.
Covid Reflections is a collaborative work inspired by the thoughts and emotions of students in Owen’s Dance for PD® Dallas virtual dance classes—a group of people with Parkinson’s disease who have been isolated for six months due to the pandemic, yet were brought together through their common interest in dance. The UTDance Ensemble has created movement to express those shared emotions in Covid Reflections, performed on the UT Dallas campus. The dancers with Parkinson’s will perform remotely and be part of the final collaborative choreographic project.
