Forefront

The University of New Mexico’s dance department kicks off its 2019 spring production season with the faculty dance concert, Forefront, opening Friday, Feb. 22 and running through Sunday, March 3 at Rodey Theater. Forefront features the choreography by department faculty, visiting artists and students, in the contemporary and flamenco genres. Francesca Harper, in residency at UNM this past fall, created a new work called “Radical Beasts” with students, about global equality, justice and empowerment. Another work, “Archetype,” by guest artist Kelsey Paschich, examines Jungian archetypes in a celebration of human diversity. “Together,” an athletic piece choreographed by faculty member Vladimir Conde Reche, depicts four women working together. Founder and director of TAKE Dance, Takehiro Ueyama, also contribute a work, entitled “The Game II,” that explores the duality of darkness and light. Two visiting flamenco artists, Agueda Saavedra and Irene La Sentio, each contribute a work of choreography, respectively “Campanas” and “Soleá.” Tickets are $15 general admission; $12 for faculty and seniors; and $10 for staff and students.
