The Gluck Contemporary Dance Ensemble presents Morph ‘n Mix

An original choreographic work that samples, alters, loops and mashes up an exciting array of movement.  Co-directors Professor Wendy Rogers and Gluck Graduate Fellow Rosa Rodriguez Frazier have collaborated with this select group of undergraduate dancers to create a dance that incorporates impromptu changes with each performance. The work features digitally generated music, audience interaction and sculptural hand props constructed by Jonathan Frazier. The Contemporary Dance Ensemble is a pre-professional opportunity for student dancers to participate in the Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts’ community arts activities.

Choreographers present dancing and creative process from current works.

This program features Brithinee Fellows,* choreographers who have been awarded a UCR Department of Dance Brithinee Fellowship for creative research in the Department’s Brithinee Dance Studio, located in the Culver Center of the Arts. Meet the dancers and take a look at what they have been doing upstairs in the corner studio. Dance Night celebrates interconnections between artists associated with UCR’s Dance Department and the choreographers, teachers, performers and audiences building Riverside’s growing downtown dance scene.
