On Dec. 8 and 9, the dance company will debut seven new works created by dance faculty and student artists featuring all original sound production created by visual and performing arts students.

Holly Jaycox, one of the choreographers for the show and continuing lecturer of dance said, “This December’s performance includes works addressing coming-of-age ceremonies, cultural assumptions around power, science fiction scenarios, unusual props and pure movement dynamics.”

The seven pieces performed feature many varied themes and include “Translucent Giddiness,“ which explores micro-aggressions that become macro movement and “Dispatched,” which depicts imagined sea creatures that lurk beneath the depths of Jupiter’s moon, Europa.

The works will be performed each evening at 7:30 and a 2 p.m. matinee will available for attendees on the ninth. The show will take place at the Nancy T. Hansen Theatre in the Yue-Kong Pao Hall of Visual and Performing Arts.

Tickets are available at the Pao Box Office, Ticketmaster or by phone at 765-494-3933.

Admission will be $14 for adults, $11 for students and $7 for children 12 and under.
