ASU and University of Alabama Team for Fall Dance Concert

The Alabama State University Department of Theatre is partnering with the University of Alabama’s Dance Program to feature works of regional and national choreographers at ASU’s fall 2017 dance concert, The Alabama Project. The concert starts at 7 p.m. Oct. 11-14 (Wednesday-Saturday) at ASU’s Leila Barlow Theater in the Tullibody Fine Arts Building.


The event, which is in celebration of Alabama’s bicentennial, will feature an electrifying program celebrating the global music, art and literature of Alabama artists through engaging, illuminating and thought-provoking choreography that ranges from ballet to jazz.  


Several regional and nationally acclaimed guest choreographers were invited to be a part of this special project.


University of Alabama’s guest choreographers Sarah Barry and Lawrence Jackson will create a modern and jazz dance work for The Alabama Project, using the music of Birmingham native Sun Ra and Tuskegee’s native son, Lionel Richie.


Works by ASU dance faculty Michael Medcalf, head of the BFA program, James Atkinson, Kavin Grant and Lindsay Renea Benton will include music from the Temptations, Alabama Shakes, poetry and visual projections from Alabama artists.


Paying homage to Heiberger native Coretta Scott King is the commissioned work of DeShona Pepper-Robertson, dance director of Stivers School of Arts in Dayton, Ohio and former member of the acclaimed Dayton Contemporary Dance Company.


At the Oct. 14 performance, Tuskegee native Dyann Robinson, artistic director of the Tuskegee Repertory Theatre, will be honored with a special presentation for her global significance and impact as a dance artist from Alabama.


General Admission to the dance concert is $12 and $6 for ASU students with valid ID.  For tickets call 334-229-4551 and call 334-229-6929 for general information.


The event is made possible via a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts.
