University Dance Department Collaborates with Jazz Musicians

On March 15-17, the University of Calgary Dance Department presents SEN5ES: Mainstage Dance 2007. Choreographed by Melissa Monteros and Michele Moss, the show is a collaborative affair and features live jazz by the Tyler Hornby Quartet.

SE5ES features the work of faculty members and professional choreographers Melissa Monteros and Michèle Moss as they explore how the body interacts with the world. The work uses video and light to aide the dancers as they delve into memory, perception, sensory overload, and so on. With movement, dance, speaking, cooking, video, and live music, SE5ES is full of sensory stimulation. e.

The Tyler Hornby Quartet, featuring drummer Hornby, Chris Andrew (piano), Rubim de Toledo (bass) and Mario Allende (percussion) will be performing a blend of jazz, Latin, and funk originals for the Mainstage Dance Show.
