Join us for an interactive program of dance and dialogue with the UI Dance Company at Space Place. In their 2023-24 season the company has focused on adaptability & accessibility, resulting in an evening of four works. "Winning" by Artistic Director Stephanie Miracle is a piece that playfully dips and dives, forms and dissolves in questions of why we compete, how we play games, when teamwork works, and what we are connected to. Also presented on the bill are new works by guest Choreographer Aaron Samuel Davis, and Prof. Christopher McMillian as well as a piece reflecting on the process of embodying Martha Graham’s iconic Panorama.  

All performances will include open and closed Audio Description. Friday's performance will also include ASL interpretation.

Audio Description (AD) is a tool for making performing and visual arts more accessible to the blind and visually impaired, integrated into the performance. UIDC has been learning to use Audio Description as a tool to describe live dance in order to connect and share with all audiences across our region. We are curious about how this process will challenge our current dance making practices and will allow us to work towards greater inclusion and accessibility in the studio and on the stage.  

About the UI Dance Company: Since 1984, UIDC has been offering students an opportunity to present high caliber, innovative dance performances to audiences across Iowa in a variety of settings. The UI Dance Company believes dance can provoke awe, inspire joy, stimulate thought, and create new perspectives. Our mission is to create meaningful connections with the community through the creation of new choreography for Space Place theater, public touring engagements, workshops, lecture-demonstrations, and site-specific interventions.
