Featured Ticket: Dancing the night away

Perpetual Motion is the spring dance concert being presented this weekend by the USF School of Theatre and Dance. The performances take place Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. Perpetual Motion runs through March 1.

Perpetual Motion is an evening of modern dance and ballet performed by a cast of 13 dancers.

The focus of the night will be “Pandora.” Michael Foley will unveil the piece inspired by Greek mythology and James Reese’s neo-gothic novel The Book of Shadows, about Pandora, a lovely girl created by the gods as a way to punish mankind. She was given a box that contained sickness, suffering, hatred and jealousy and told to never think of opening it.

The concert will also feature “Nothing Much,” “Once Upon A Time” and a specially choreographed dance by guest alumnus Mike Caudill.

Jeanne Travers choreographed “Nothing Much,” in which a duet is danced to the music of Franz Schubert.

“Once Upon A Time” is a ballet that blends contemporary dance steps with timeless ballet movements.

Tickets for ‘Perpetual Motion’ are available at the USF Theatre box office: $10 for adults and $5 for seniors and students with ID.
