The Department of Dance will present its Fall Concert Thursday, Nov. 14, through Sunday, Nov. 17; it will feature four works choreographed by faculty and performed by students. Among the pieces on the program is a reflection, through contemporary dance, on the shooting that occurred at UNC Charlotte on April 30.
The concert will include tributes to two iconic artistic figures: Freddie Mercury of the rock band Queen and the artist, Frida Kahlo. “Queen City Rhapsody,” choreographed by Associate Professor E.E. Balcos, opens the program. Created for six dancers, the contemporary dance piece is set to three Queen hits: “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Who Wants to Live Forever?” and the David Bowie collaboration, “Under Pressure.”
