EKU Dance Theatre concert this week

RICHMOND — Eastern Kentucky University’s Dance Theatre will present its spring concert Wednesday though Saturday, April 10-13, in the Charles D. Whitlock Student Success Building’s auditorium.

The concert is scheduled for 8 p.m. nightly with a matinee Saturday, April 13, at 2 p.m.

Tickets are available in Weaver 309 or by calling 622-2171 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Admission is $5 for students, $10 general admission and free for children under age 12 (reservation still needed for children).

Although the group is typically focused on modern dance, students and faculty members Katrina Martir and director Marianne McAdam have choreographed a variety of dances, including clogging, tango and hip hop.

This semester’s pieces have an overlying theme of struggle, with Naomi Day performing a solo on depression, Cortlyn Todd expressing the difficulty college students experience with change, and alumna Mary Unterriener reflecting on the caffeinated roller coaster of excessive energy and exhaustion.

On a lighter note, the audience will be amused with the role of the man in the tango piece and the humorous theme inspired by the movie “Mean Girls” in the clogging piece by Whitney Brockman, McAdam said. One of the highlights of the show is a 1990s hip-hop piece choreographed by Mio Sasaki, a visiting student from Yamanashi University.

“It turns out that ’90s hip-hop is popular in Japan,” McAdam said. “We were all delighted the first time we saw it and amazed how well Mio transferred her passion to our students. Overall, this is an excellent concert in theme, performance and choreography.”
