FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
West Virginia University at Parkersburg will present the bold athleticism and creative choreography of BodyVox in a Distinguished Performance Series program Friday, Oct. 21.
The 8 p.m. presentation will be held in the college's multi-purpose room.
Uplifting and often uproarious, the progressive dance company entertains audiences with breathtaking physicality, striking imagery, and guffaw inducing wit and whimsy. Jamey Hampton and Ashley Roland, former members of Pilobolus and Momix, are founders of the ensemble. Their body of work includes choreography for the Academy Awards, music videos for Sting, U2, Pat Metheny, and John Fogerty, and “The Glass Spider” arena concert for David Bowie.
Beyond poetry in motion, BodyVox combines diverse forms of dance, media, and stage design to create multimedia shows that are thought provoking and thoroughly entertaining. Dance Magazine called their performance “finely crafted, frequently funny, and impeccably danced.”Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students with specially priced advance tickets for WVU Parkersburg students. Ticket information is available in the college's business office.
Financial support for the series is provided by the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the West Virginia Commission on the Arts and WVU Parkersburg.
