Buffalo, NY- The University at Buffalo Theatre & Dance Department will present Zodiaque Dance Company from March 1-5, 2017. Performance times are: Wednesday-Saturday at 7:30pm; Sunday at 2:00pm. All performances will be held in the Drama Theatre in the Center for the Arts, North Campus. Tickets are $20, Students (any school) & Seniors $10.

This Zodiaque Dance Company concert embodies the founding vision of presenting various classical styles alongside new works that stretch the definition of what dance can be. For this 43rd spring concert, Zodiaque Dance Company presents works by faculty Melanie Aceto, Anne Burnidge, Jenna DelMonte, and Kerry Ring. Other contributions include works by two Zodiaque alum – Chicago based tap artist Richard Ashworth and artist in residence Jon Lehrer, and two guest choreographers – DeSales University Dance faculty Julia Mayo and Bessie Award winner Jennifer Nugent. All works are captured by the lighting design of Jeremiah King.

Guest costume designer, Jen Dasher, in collaboration with Theatre and Dance Professor Jon Shimon have created LED based costumes for two choreographic works. In the spirit of innovation, this collaboration was funded by the Morris Visiting Artist Fund and provided an opportunity for Computer Science and Design Technology students to develop, code, and construct the high-tech costumes.​ Zodiaque Dance Company continues to be an innovative force, advancing its inspired talents through stimulating collaborations and creative investigations, while presenting work by respected dance makers.

The UB Department of Theatre & Dance 2016-17 season takes inspiration from one of the five named UB 2020 themes, Humanity.
