Student’s dance a feast for the senses

022713Feature_Dance“Methods of Perception: Dance to Engage the Senses” is a collection of dance works that invites audiences to experience all five senses through dance.

In addition to accessing sight and sound, creator Melanie Greene, in her MFA Thesis concert, investigates how touch, taste, and smell inform the perception and reception of dance.

The evening will include choreography by Greene in collaboration with dancers and colleagues to transform contemporary dance from abstract to literal and back again. Materials will be available before the show to promote dance literacy and inspire an interactive sensory entrance into the dance works before the viewing experience.

The concert will be held March 1 and 2, 2013, at 8 p.m. in the UNCG Dance Theater Purchase tickets at the Box Office, at 334-4849 or visit www.uncg.edu/euc/boxoffice.
