Each semester, members of the dance area have traditionally come together to present a showcase of student work known as the “Dance Area Performance Showcase” or DAPS. This year, with the shift to online learning amidst shelter-in-place protocols, faculty and students have had to adjust their plans to preserve some semblance of what a normal semester would look like. For our dancers, this included reinventing their DAPS showcase as a YouTube playlist; sharing videos of online classes and experiments as well as virtual performances of their final projects.
The work presented on stage would not be possible without our talented designers, who spend countless hours developing artistry that bring performances to life. We sat down with two of our design students to discuss their creative process and the challenges of crafting work for both new plays and choreography.
Texas Theatre and Dance is pleased to present the 2017/2018 Season including our Subscription Series. This powerful line up of works includes the story of an immigrant’s journey to find “home,” a playful musical that examines the true nature of theatre, a story of scandal and corruption that defined a generation, striking new choreography and the gripping story of a town overcome with fear.
Subscription packages will be available beginning in August 2017. Individual ticket sales will begin September 2017.
