UMBC'S ACCLAIMED PHOENIX DANCE COMPANY PERFORMS

BALTIMORE - The Phoenix Dance Company, a professional group in residence at UMBC, will present a program highlighting the human experience through a variety of art forms at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, February 11, 12, 13 and 14. The group will perform in UMBC's Fine Arts Studio 317; admission is $10 general and $6 for students and seniors.

Hailed as a bold, ambitious artist” by the Washington Post, Doug Hamby brings his experimental choreographic style to this performance in Walk to Heaven, a score written by Nino Rota for filmmaker Federico Fellini. Hamby also collaborates with intermedia artist Steve Bradley in the premiere of an untitled work which juxtaposes dance, video and music. The piece explores Chaos Theory in its use of video to create an environment for thematically unrelated dance. Three dancers adorned in white costumes symbolic of video screens create the impression that they are only semi-human among the multimedia images which surround them.

Other works on the night's program include the premiere of Carol Hess' Shooting Gallery which explores a male-female relationship using dance and video images. The Baltimore premiere of Two by Eartha by Irene Hultman features Sandra Lacy with music performed by Eartha Kitt.
