Whether you’re a dance aficionado or a dance newbie, you’ll enjoy this annual show featuring contemporary works by faculty and guest artists with our pre-professional dance company, the UH Dance Ensemble.
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Sara Becker
Shakespeare’s perennial crowd pleaser, this comedy includes mistaken identity, cross dressing, wrestling, fools, snakes, lions, oh my! Rosalind and her cousin Celia flee the dangerous court and travel into the mysterious Forest of Arden, kicking off a grand adventure that changes everyone involved. Good thing they brought their clown along for help! Travel along with Shakespeare’s band of country bumpkins, exiles and princesses for a journey of self-discovery and forgiveness. After all, "Can one desire too much of a good thing?"
Dionysia 2013 presents an adaptation of the Iliad, Homer's classic tale of war and suffering, entitled Ilium.
Jen Sommers of the School of Theatre and Dance choreographs and directs, with music composed and conducted by Moores School of Music vocal performance major Alyssa Weathersby.
