Dance Concert on Dec. 6-7 Features Premiere

Performers from three nations will be featured in the premiere of the dance theater piece "Night Shift" at Hope College on Friday & Saturday, Dec. 6-7, at 8 p.m. at the Knickerbocker Theatre.

"Night Shift" will be performed and was also created by Avi Kaiser of Germany, Steven Iannacone of the Hope dance faculty and Sergio Antonino of Italy. It will feature original music by Gerhard Stabler of Germany.

The evening's program, titled "Night Shift," will feature two pieces. The first work is "Piazza Figure 2," where, in a metaphysical space made of leaves and souvenirs, figures experience relations of diverse colors. In the second work, "Night Shift," three men confront time, boredom and escape in a shabby hotel lobby.

Tickets will be available at the door, and cost $7 for regular admission, and $5 for senior citizens and students. Admission is free for children under 12.

"Night Shift" is a co-production of Hope College and the college's Patrons for the Arts; Goethe Institute Inter Nationes of Chicago, Ill.; "The Roof" Tanzraum of Germany; Aerial Dance Theater; the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts; "In the Body"; and the Holland Area Arts Council.

The Knickerbocker Theatre is located at 86 E. 8th St. in downtown Holland.
