Dancers ready spring concert

April 25, 2008


Relationships, headless figures and spiritual paradigms will be among the topics explored during the 940 Dance Company's spring concert tonight and Saturday.

The Lawrence Arts Center's professional company will perform at 7:30 p.m. both nights at the center, 940 N.H.

Among the featured works:

¢ "Resilience," a new sextet choreographed by Susan Rieger, the company's artistic director. The piece was inspired by a sculpture of 12 headless figures at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Mo.

¢ "Chair Suite," also by Rieger, in which dancers interact with a chair that represents patterns of a relationship.

¢ "Lifeboat" by Non Edwards, which deals with the idea of living with comedy in the atomic age.

¢ "Was Bleibt," by Bobbi Foudree, a quartet in which dancers interact in a removed, distant manner.

"This concert has humor, intelligence and courageous looks at many areas of life and the voices of five experienced choreographers," Rieger says.

Tickets are $13 for adults and $7.50 for students and seniors.
