Brown University Theatre and Sock & Buskin proudly present the Festival of Dance 2016. This annual dance concert brings together the best work produced by students, faculty, and professional dancers across the city over the past twelve months. This year’s festival features performances by Dance Extension, ImPulse Dance Company, Fusion Dance Company, and New Works/World Traditions.
International dance troupe New Works/World Traditions has developed a newly devised piece, Masking, a meditation on the nature of dreams. New Works/World Traditions will also perform Wasalunka. This celebratory West African Mande dance piece is steeped in the hunter societies of the Bambara peoples of Mali.
Student-led Fusion Dance Company will perform Evolve, choreographed by Stanley Muñoz ’17. Fusion Dance Company is a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic group of men and women who perform a variety of dance styles and do not conform to modern day constraints on body shape, size, dance style, and choreography.
Also featuring the choreography of Billy Siegenfeld ‘70 and Fulbright Lecturer Priyadarshini Shome.
