Gerald Carpenter: UCSB on the ‘Move Move Move’ with Spring Dance Concert

Sunday afternoon performance will feature the work of students and faculty

Those who enjoy demonstrations of breathtaking physical grace will want to be on the scene in Hatlen Theater this weekend when the UCSB Department of Theater and Dance presents its annual spring dance concert, “Move Move Move.”

The concert, directed by Mira Kingsley, features the choreography of advanced UCSB dance students, works by UCSB faculty members, plus two dances from the UCSB Dance Company repertory.

The program includes “Regret to Inform,” choreographed by student Catri Grisso based on her uncle’s stories of his time in the Vietnam War; “What the Water Give Me,” choreographed by student Brittany Castillo, an expressionistic response to the paintings of Frida Kahlo; “The Earth is Lovely, Too” by Mira Kingsley, UCSB faculty member and concert director; “Love, Petrushka” by UCSB faculty member Christina McCarthy, telling the story of the classic Russian ballet through the medium of puppet theater; and “The Secret Lives of Aquarium Creatures,” choreographed by student Rachel Greenblat with music by George Gershwin and Alexandre Desplat, imagining what happens to our aquatic pets when we turn the lights out.

“Move Move Move” will play at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday in Hatlen Theatre on the UCSB campus. Tickets are $13 to $17 and available at the door, or click here to purchase tickets online.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
