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.
