TU closes its ninth season with three world premieres
The O'Shaughnessy company closes out its ninth performance season with a spring dance concert of world premiere works by Uri Sands and Camille A. Brown. Sands presents two premieres-a triptych of duets titled No Middle Name, and Escapades- an adventurous full-company work exploring themes of vice and escape of the everyday. Solo work makes up New York choreographer Camille A. Brown's new piece, Make Amends, which was specially commissioned for this concert by The O'Shaughnessy. Also on the program is Dwight Rhoden's lyrical B Sessions, set to the music of Beethoven.
