TU Dance

Music & Movement Series, Ordway Music Theater

Artistic Directors Toni Pierce-Sands and Uri Sands open TU Dance’s 15th anniversary season with a new retrospective work reflecting on the company’s rich repertoire of thought-provoking works.

This unique performance also includes Salve (2017), originally commissioned by Ballet Memphis and set to the music of Gavin Bryars, a meditative work for eight dancers created by weaving together interactions and exchanges between performers, illustrating the idea of healing through the simple action of coming together. The anniversary program also features the Ordway’s first commission for TU Dance — With Love (2011), inspired by the paintings of African American artist Ernie Barnes and set to the legendary music of Donny Hathaway.
