The Margaret Jenkins Dance Company presents: “Times Bones”

mjdc_times_bonesFrom Cynthia Tong ’14:

Don’t know what to do this Valentine’s Day weekend with your S.O. or your friends? Consider coming to this amazing dance performance for your Valentine’s Day weekend!

The Margaret Jenkins Dance Company is known nationwide for performing highly charged kinetic works that are at once physically rigorous and intellectually demanding. Celebrating the 40th anniversary of her Company, choreographer Margaret Jenkins created Times Bones (2013) in collaboration with her dancers, composer Paul Dresher, visual designer Alexander V. Nichols, and poet Michael Palmer. Inspired by the myth of Osiris, Ms. Jenkins, with her dancers and collaborators, gathers the scattered “bones” of her past repertory, finding a new dance at the collision of past and present. Regarded as one of this country’s most influential dance-makers, Margaret Jenkins propels the artists and the audience on a journey forward into a rich and unknown territory.

The Last Days of the Old Wild Boy

Looking for some cathartic and/or mimetic fun? Sewon Kang ’14 has just the ticket:

Come see Rinde Eckert’s Fall Faculty Theater Production The Last Days
of the Old Wild Boy!

The Last Days of the Old Wild Boy is about a man raised by wolves who finds himself toward the end of his life at the top of the food chain. Powerful and erudite, he longs for a return to the wildness of the
wolf he was–but how does one recover one’s original, less conditioned or acculturated self? What is gained in the effort? What is lost in translation? The Grammy Award-winning musician, writer, composer, librettist, and director will perform the world premiere of a new work developed during his residency at Wesleyan.
