The Plymouth State University Contemporary Dance Ensemble will present an evening of dance in two acts on Dec. 6 and 7 at 7 p.m. in the Hanaway Theatre at the Silver Center for the Arts.

Works for Act I will showcase several genres of dance, including contemporary, performance art, theatrical, jazz and lyrical.

Act II will unveil a collaborative performance piece created by PSU dance faculty Lisa Travis, Lenore Sousa and Whitworth. The 40- minute uninterrupted work was inspired by the “schizophrenic qualities of lucid dreaming,” according to Whitworth. More than 30 dancers will participate in this monumental work that includes a physical wall the dancers manipulate and break open to reveal pivotal scenes and ideas.

Pieces of the musical score have been created and edited by both dancers and choreographers to add a layer of tonal and rhythmic sophistication to the work.

Tickets for the evening of dance are $12 for adults, $8 for seniors, youth & groups and can be purchased at the Silver Center Box Office, 535-2787 or (800) 779- 3869. Tickets are also available online at silver.plymouth.edu.

Choreographer Paul Taylor is the last living member of the pantheon that created America’s indigenous art of modern dance.  At an age when most artists’ best work is behind them, Mr. Taylor continues to win public and critical acclaim for the vibrancy, relevance and power of his creations.  Thirty years ago he created the Paul Taylor 2 Dance Company to bring his vision into communities all over the world.  Taylor himself chooses the repertoire and the six dancers in the company to illuminate the athleticism, humor and range of emotions found in his work.  The New York Times calls Taylor 2 “a miracle….that has long been one of the most vital and accomplished of second troupes in New York City.”
