Created by a quartet of renowned choreographers commissioned by Dance St. Louis, PNC Arts Alive “New Dance Horizons” will be the next offering in the 2012-2013 season of the Campus Performing Arts Series at Missouri University of Science and Technology. The performance will be at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall on the Missouri S&T campus, 10th and Main streets in Rolla.
“New Dance Horizons” brings together choreographers Victoria Marks, Jessica Lang, Pamela Tanowitz and Gina Patterson with St. Louis-based dance companies Saint Louis Ballet, Leverage Dance Theater, MADCO and Common Thread Contemporary Dance Co. to create world premiere productions.
“We wanted to kick off the season with a bang,” says Michael Uthoff, Dance St Louis‘ artistic and executive director. “What better way to do it than a quartet of collaborations?”
