The biannual faculty dance concert is sponsored by the Program in Theater and Dance in the Lewis Center for the Arts.

Ze’eva Cohen, a professor in and founder of the University’s dance program, will present “Cloud Song,” a multimedia dance piece first choreographed in 1971. It will be performed by senior Elizabeth Schwall.

Tina Fehlandt, a lecturer and founding member of the Mark Morris Dance Group, will perform “Peccadillos,” a solo piece choreographed by Morris set to the music of Erik Satie. “Peccadillos” only has been danced by Mikhail Baryshnikov, Morris and current Mark Morris Dance Group member Joe Bowie; Fehlandt will be the first woman to perform the piece.

Zvi Gotheiner, a lecturer, will present an excerpt from “Interiors,” which explores a panorama of urban stories that take place while looking through the window of a high-rise apartment building.

Dyane Harvey, a lecturer and a founding member of Forces of Nature Dance Theatre of New York City, will present “The Corner,” a work-in-progress based on the life and achievements of Muhammad Ali.

Brazilian-born dancer and choreographer Patricia Hoffbauer, a lecturer, will perform “Three Seascapes.” The piece was choreographed in 1962 by Yvonne Rainer, a pioneer of postmodern dance, who reconstructed it for Hoffbauer in 2002.

Rebecca Lazier, acting head of dance, will present her piece “Terminal,” performed by her New York dance company Terrain. “Terminal” allows audiences to peer into landscapes where people are haunted by their inability to comfort themselves or each other.

“Now Dance” is free and open to the public, but limited seating is available and reservations are required. To reserve tickets, call University Ticketing at 258-9220 or visit www.princeton.edu/utickets.
