The Old Dominion University Dance Theatre is pleased to present its annual Fall Dance Concert at 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Nov. 20-21, and at 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 22, at the University Theatre, Hampton Boulevard between 46th and 47th Streets.

The program will include work by ODU faculty, guest choreographers and selected students.

Special guest artist Ofosuwa Abiola-Tamba will present Faju, an original African dance work performed by ODU students to the pounding rhythms of live drums. This work was enthusiastically received at its premier in the first annual Choreographers' Showcase concert Oct. 30.

Beverly Cordova Duane, adjunct assistant professor and director of Second Wind Dance Company, contributes two exciting dances: "Pick Up," a lively duet in which the female dancer rarely touches the floor, and "Silence," a group dance to Brazilian music that is a passionate contrast between beauty and angst. "Pick Up" was also included in the Choreographers' Showcase.

An original contemporary ballet piece, "Never Alone," choreographed by adjunct instructor Jenna Miller, examines the experience of being supported by others through difficult times. This piece will be performed en pointe.

Assistant Professor Amanda Kinzer presents three dances. "Princess' Dance," an original modern solo, is an excerpt from the full-length work, "The Soldier's Tale," which will be performed by the Norfolk Chamber Consort on March 29, 2004, as part of their 35th Anniversary Concert. "Adagio," a contemporary ballet duet, and an excerpt from "Entropy," a modern dance for six women to the haunting music of Philip Glass, will also be included in the concert.

Dance Division Director and Associate Professor Marilyn Marloff will present "Bounds" a restaging of her 1996 work reflecting personal turmoil over the pressure to remain within acceptable boundaries and the compulsion to break them.

Rounding out the program will be selected student works in a variety of styles.

Tickets are available at the door or in advance at the Arts and Letters Box office in Chandler Recital Hall, 683-5305. Prices are $10 for general admission, $8 for non-ODU students and seniors, and $5 for ODU students. For other information, call 683-3002 or 683-4354.
