POETRY IN MOTION

UB Resident Zodiaque Dance Company – Presented by UB Department of Theatre & Dance

The art of dance uses movement to communicate meaning that defines the human experience. Dance reflects the values of a multicultural society, stimulates critical thinking and makes cognitive and artistic connections through the creative process. Zodiaque Dance Company has succeeded for over 40 years in proving that Dance is a relevant subject of inquiry, integration, and engagement. This fall, ZDC presents Poetry in Motion, a dance experience that explores various styles of movement and asks the question “What is Dance?” Accessible dances designed to entertain, excite, and integrate the arts through movement, students will make connections to international dance styles (Bollywood) and popular American dance forms (hip hop), and interpret the expression and beauty of poetry through movement (Bob Dylan song cycle). Zodiaque Dance Company is an innovative force, advancing inspired talents through stimulating collaborations and creative investigations which deepens audience understanding and appreciation for the arts.

Curriculum Connections: Language/Communication, Explores Diversity through Movement, Aesthetic Inquiry, Music, Athleticism, Making Observations and Connections, Asking Questions, and Sharing Findings with Others.
