KUNM

Festival To Celebrate Contemporary Dance In Albuquerque

Sep 28, 2016

Contemporary dance will be explored in Albuquerque at VSA North Fourth Theater as the Duke City's Shift Dance presents their first national contemporary dance festival September 29 through October 1, 2016. The event features a brand new commissioned piece by local choreographer and educator Donna Jewell, Associate Professor of Dance in the Department of Theatre and Dance at the University of New Mexico.  

Donna Jewell spoke with KUNM's Chris Boros about her piece, the festival, and why dance can do much more than just entertain.
