Unidentified Dance — a new movement company led by co-artistic directors Margaret Moreno and Trevor Van Oden — will premiere its first public work, "Identity Awakens," this Saturday. Moreno and Van Oden met while apprenticing with FuturPointe Dance and found that they shared similar views on the value of dance in communication and self-discovery. "Identity Awakens" will be in collaboration with musician Jean Funk. And right from the start, the company will play into its stated mission to "help other radical, contemporary artists gain exposure by creating visually enticing, intellectually charged, multi-disciplinary work."
Unidentified Dance will perform "Identity Awakens" on Saturday, May 16, at Nu Movement, 716 University Avenue. 6:30 p.m. (a pre-show class with the company will take place at 5:30 p.m.) $10. 704-2889; unidentifieddance.wix.com/unidentifieddance.
