Spring Dance will bring two alumni back to UNCSA with new works, while guest artist Gina Patterson will present a brand-new reimagining of “The Seven Deadly Sins.”
Set to an original score by Jordan Brook Hamlin, “The Seven Deadly Sins” will be “a world of its own, combining both the contemporary and ballet departments into an aesthetic that combines and challenges both,” Patterson said. Student designers from the School of Design & Production will produce “an integrated landscape that will communicate a powerful and emotional portrayal of the ‘sins’ as they relate universally and personally, past and present.” Patterson’s work appears in the repertoire of more than 25 companies. She has won numerous awards, including the prestigious Choo San Goh Award for Choreography.
Alumnus Grady Bowman’s (B.F.A. ’05) work has spanned Broadway, off-Broadway, television, circus, dance companies and universities. He most recently received a Helen Hayes nomination for Best Choreography for “Singin' in the Rain” at the Olney Theatre Center.
Alumnus Jim Vincent (B.F.A. ’78) is the former artistic director of the Nederlands Dans Theater and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, as well as an Imagineer and executive creative director with The Walt Disney Company.
