Seniors from the UNCG Department of Dance will culminate their undergraduate dance careers with some serious dance.

Senior Concert II, entitled “BFA2: This Time It’s Personal,” will take place at 8 p.m. April 29 and April 30 and at 2 p.m. on April 30 at the UNCG Dance Theatre located at the corner of Walker Avenue and Kenilworth Street. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for UNCG students with a valid ID and $7 for seniors, children and non-UNCG students.

The second senior concert will feature the choreography of:
• Stephanie Blackmon’s “Fake Dead Flowers Between a Real Lady and Me” is performed by nine dancers, including Blackmon. Blackmon uses movement created by the entire cast, as well as music and text, to comment on female body politics in modern society.

• Nikki Bucks performs in “Two-Way Mirror,” a duet that explores the way people rely on one another for therapy.

• Elizabeth Burley’s “Methodology” is performed by five dancers with scenography by Beth and Deth Productions and an original music score by Joshua Morris. “Methodology” is a work composed of solos, illustrating the manner in which artists make, treat, and feed on art and each other.

• Lauren Hamlett’s “Problem with MANY Names…(long list of names to come)” is performed by seven dancers and uses music from various artists. Hamlett’s approach combines two isolated casts into one cohesive dance work, which presents athletic, inverted movement and explores past relationships.

• Kathleen Kelley’s “Trivial” is a solo choreographed and performed by Kelley. This work is communicated with original music performed live by three members of the Greensboro-based band, Industries of the Blind.

• Lauren Trollinger’s “sum…where?” choreographer Lauren Trollinger uses seven dancers to explore public and private personas. She correlates many styles of movement, from modern to hip hop. In addition to movement, Trollinger uses three pieces of fabric and different lighting techniques.

Senior Concert II is the final project for these young women completing their four-year bachelor of fine arts and/or bachelor of arts in dance with a concentration in choreography. Senior Concert II is the final performance in the UNCG Dance Theatre for the 2004-2005 season.
