The Department of Dance presents Dancing in Memory Burning, on February 1 (7:30 pm), February 2 & 3 (8:00 pm) and February 4 (2:00 pm) at The Power Center for the Performing Arts.

Four internationally recognized choreographers, in collaboration with the BFA and MFA students in the Department of Dance, premiere original works of choreography.

Rosanna Tavarez – Rules of Interaction
Charli Brissey – Time is a Thing a Body Moves Through
Kyunghwa Hong – Home Beyond the Mountains
Ananya Chatterjea – Habibi Bhumi

In each of the four dances, a throughline of embodied mapping and memory is etched and revealed, even as each work offers a profoundly unique vision. With palpable force, the dancers are propelled by distinct questions and burning desires. How memories travel through time and bodies – how they are unfixed and fallible, how they destroy and heal, and implicate uncertain futures – is a shared thread.

Rosanna Tavarez is on the dance faculty at California Institute of the Arts and is a BFA alum of the U-M Dance department.
