Performance: University Dancers
November 30—December 2, 2017 7:30 pm
UMass Amherst Campus
The department of music and dance presents the University Dancers, led by co-artistic directors Tom Vacanti and Leslie Frye Maietta. The dancers will present a choreographic ode to the poetic and political lives and work of Pablo Neruda and Federico Garcia-Lorca.
Vacanti and Frye Maietta create a surrealistic evening-length exploration into the lives and work of two of the greatest Latino poets of our time. Reflecting the surrealistic principal of "exquisite corpse," the directors layer their unique choreographic visions in episodic parts to produce an original dance theatre experience.
Totman is in the northern end of campus, near the Northeast, Sylvan and North Residential Areas and the intersection of North Pleasant Street and Eastman Lane.
