Every spring, the influential UWM Dance Department showcases the students in works made for them by faculty and guest choreographers. Each concert has a theme that the choreographers interpret freely. This year, it’s alchemy or, as Artistic Director Maria Gillespie describes it, “embodied freedom, agency and the techniques for the transformation of self and space.” The choreographers are Gillespie, Dani Kuepper, Daniel Burkholder and guest artist Holly Johnston of California’s Ledges and Bones Dance Project. (John Schneider)

According to choreographer Catey Ott Thompson who serves as producer and organizer, this free outdoor afternoon performance at stations surrounding the historic chapel on Marquette’s campus will include dance, theater, costume, choral music, spoken word and carillon performance inspired by the life of Joan of Arc, all of it created during the spring semester by faculty and student collaborators from several departments with support from the Haggerty Art Museum. Even the campus gardeners are involved. (John Schneider)
