The H2 Dance Company of Hope College will present its annual concert on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 27 and 28, and Friday and Saturday, Nov. 3 and 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the Knickerbocker Theatre in downtown Holland.
H2 Dance Company consists of Hope College students and is one of the college’s premier dance companies. H2 Dance performs a wide assortment of styles by a variety of choreographers.
The theme for this year’s concert is “All about a Table,” with the program centered around the idea of what happens around a table. Instead of the usual breaks between pieces, short films that also address the theme will be shown.
Hope faculty members Matthew Farmer, Crystal Frazier and Steven Iannacone have each choreographed a work for the concert. Farmer’s piece, “Les Joueurs,” is a comedy speaking to the current political state of the U.S. and a direct reference to Kurt Jooss’ famous work “The Green Table.” Frazier’s piece is “The Nest,” and deals with the idea of birds and how tables can be both a nesting place and a cage. Iannacone’s piece includes “Sure la table,” which is dedicated to his mother and examines the family-table activities of women during the 1950s and 1960s.
Tickets are $10 for regular admission, $7 for senior citizens and Hope faculty and staff, $5 for children age 13 to 18, and free for Hope students and children 12 and under.
