Faculty Dance Concert
Friday, September 6, 7PM, Kirby Theater
Free admission. Open seating. No reservations required.
Refreshments after concert with opportunity to meet FCDD faculty
Amherst College Theater and Dance Department is proud to present an evening of original works by faculty members Paul Matteson and Wendy Woodson. The concert will feature, WAYPOINT, a duet for actor and dancer looking for the horizon,
written and directed by Wendy Woodson, created in collaboration with and performed by Ron Bashford and Paul Matteson.
The evening also includes two pieces choreographed by Paul Matteson. SHOW STOPPERS, performed by Matteson and Raja Feather Kelly, is a physically epic journey of brothers, or lovers, or friends; no, strangers who happen to share the same questions, fears and secrets. Matteson’s other work, Take it OVER, performed by Matteson, James Morrow and Jennifer Polins, is a kinetic partnering pushed to the edge of execution where failure is inevitable and intended futures turn inside out.
