UC Berkeley Presents New Works in 'Berkeley Dance Project 2013: Aperture

The UC Berkeley Department of Theater, Dance and Performance Studies is excited to present Berkeley Dance Project 2013: Aperture from April 19-28. The dance presentation will feature four new works by Lisa Wymore, Katie Faulkner, Scott Wells and Chia-Yi Seetoo; it will also include an art installation.

From 1964-68, Famed photographer Ansel Adams spent time at the University of California on a groundbreaking photographic project commissioned by UC President Clark Kerr. At its core the project, entitled Fiat Lux(Let There Be Light, the University of California motto) asked Adams to answer the question "How can we imagine our future?" Over the course of the project, Adams took thousands of photos of the entire UC system, culminating in a published book written by Nancy Newhall in 1967, which was revisited in a full-year, campuswide multimedia exploration of Adams' work this year called On the Same Page.

Berkeley Dance Project 2013: Aperture, the final production in UC Berkeley's Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies Main Stage season, responds to and continues Adams' work as part of the On the Same Page initiative, featuring four choreographic premieres and an exhibition of student artistic work , each bringing new perspectives and framings of contemporary life. The production opens April 19 in Zellerbach Playhouse.
